AllMusic Review by

Diapason confused us muchly the first time we met - they play the most classic of Haitian minijazz, but seem to come from Martinique or Guadeloupe. Anyway, this is a very large band that swings like those of old, with a big fat horn section (I know I heard a baritone or lower sax), incorporating The Freres DeJean. This is one of those recordings where you really can hear the only slightly modified salsa piano riffs linking the guitars and drums
