What's that? You want Latin jazz with swing? The Detroit based ensemble Tumbao Bravo hears you — and delivers the goods. Their latest release entitled Amigos: From Our Hands is a gem of a release that features all original compositions that would work equally well on the dancefloor or through the headphones. I especially liked "50 y 33" - a collaborative composition by Alberto Nacif and keyboardist Sven Anderson. It's a fiery number that lets Nacif and Javier Barrios stretch on percussion. But some of the best material on Amigos has an intelligence to it that is able to create a warm, mellow feel without turning saccharine — something not easy to pull off. Cal Tjader was able to do it. Listen to Paul Vornhagen's piece called "La Noche." And Anderson's "Oneiros" featuring flute, trumpet and piano solos. It's all good, totally enjoyable stuff. Also with bassists John Barron and Jacob Chimara, drummer Alex Trajano, and trumpeter Bob Mojica.
