This disc was purchased after seeing a concert on the Rumba Foundation tour and although not the same as a life performance, it has an amazing percussive sound that displays mixed influence rhythms. Great guitar work...very latin flavour.
I am a long-time admirer of Jesse Cook and he has tried to reinvent himself from time to time but this CD falls way short of my expectations. Sharp percussive drumming from South America doesn't add much character and serves to push the lead guitar work into a background of other instruments. Back to basics Jesse... or take up the Blues. Good background mood music for an evening supper party.
