Album Notes
Pure swing, and a ton of salsa class. Papo Lucca takes on a few Cuban tunes-Adalberto Alvarez's "Caprichosa," Manolin's "Lejania," Pancho Amat's "El Alacran"; Kurt Weill's "Mack The Knife" makes an appearance. Horace Silver's "Nica's Dream" shows up as does a Christian tune praising God. And it all swings deeply in a way that seems almost lost, that sort of deep in the pocket groove that just makes you feel good. Lucca's solos-listen to him splinter time and color on "De La Mata Son"-are up to his high standards. The arrangements, with lots of breaks and bass-piano lines, function like the intelligent dance music that this is. Sonora Ponceña has been long overdue for a recording; let's hope that they keep going back into the studio. There's a lot left in that particular well.
Highly recommended. By Peter Watrous
