Fine collection of Latin music. Russell brings them to life with his excellent skills and clear, bright sound. I haven't heard close to 70% of these pieces on any other recording or performance before; it's always nice to hear new (to me anyway) and interesting music. My favorites in this collection are: Danza Brasilera, La Cuartalera, Interrogando, Seis por Derecho, Vals Peruano, and Chopi, which are all on the upbeat side. However, there are several slower and more melancholy pieces that are beautiful as well.
