Album Notes
Louie Cruz Beltran is a charismatic entertainer who has captivated audiences with his dynamic stage presence and inventive work on congas and timbales. A wonderful vocalist as well, this CD showcases Louie at his best, with some of the top names in music, including Poncho Sanchez, Hubert Laws, Justo Almario, Giovanni Hidalgo, Abraham Laboriel, and Peter Michael Escovedo. Also performing with Louie are Bill Cantos and Hussain Jiffry, well-known for their work with Herb Alpert. In addition, popular studio and performing artists Joe Rotondi, Rene Camacho, Otmaro Ruiz, Nick Mancini and Chalo Eduardo add to the fun and flavor of this dynamic CD.

The disc includes six original compositions along with six classics done in Louie's unique style. With outstanding production values, and an all star line up, this is a must have for every fan of Latin jazz, as well as those who have more ecclectic taste in jazz, R&B and pop. There are solid salsa influences here - Louie's "Chili Caliente" and Tito Puente's "Ran Kan Kan" are sure to get you up and dancing. Louie's hauntingly beautiful original instrumental "Esperando", as well as the classic Bachrach/David tune "The Look of Love" are romantic and sensual. This is a well balanced, beautifully realized album that showcases Louie's range as a composer, vocalist and world class percussionist.

Louie's own artwork graces the cover and reflects his passion for the arts. The CD represents a canvas of musical colors which blend so smoothly that the listener is drawn into the artistry of the rhythms both danceable and romantic. What more could you want? Paint the Rhythm!

Paint The Rhythm
Once again, Louie thrills us with his wonderful sound. Loved the songs. His rhythms touch my soul!


Makes you want to dance in your seat
I first listened to this CD while on a road trip. Made me dance in my seat!
Great rhythm and selection of songs. Nice touch to have Louie's art on the CD.
