There are only four tunes on this disc but they total to almost 50 minutes! Each tune offers a wide berth for each musician to explore the harmonic and melodic characteristics of the composition. The solos are extended and involved tremendous virtuosity and energy. The interplay between Joey De Leon, the percussionist, and Jimmy Branly, the drummer, is absolutely magical. And the bass performance by Carlitos Del Puerto is pitch perfect and all over the instrument. You can tell by the smiles on the faces of these performers that they are enjoying every moment of the session.
This disc was shot using HD video equipment and is presented in 16:9 HD-Video on this Blu-ray disc.
