Album Notes
On this, their second release for LBP, Los Mas Valientes guides the listener through a Latin flavored sampling of Caribbean styles including Songo, Salsa, Bomba, even Bossa Nova and Reggae.

Although the influences are varied, the band remains true to its roots by delivering a cohesive album, diverse and exploratory, yet always remaining Latin jazz at its best.

The band has grown and changed a bit since the last CD, adding Willie Serrano on bongo and percussion and Victor Rendón on timbale.

They've included some vocals on this record with their arrangement of a Salsa standard, Obsesión, as well as on Timba-Son and Vieques.

The band is joined by some extraordinary guest musicians as well: trumpeter Ray Vega (Tito Puente Orchestra), Miri Ben Ari on violin and Carlos "Tato" Torres.

After the success of the first record, we are very excited about the possibilities for this one.

The first record enjoyed extensive airplay, a top ten ranking from Latin Beat magazine and brisk sales.

This record builds upon the foundation of the last, and we are sure you will enjoy it as much or even more.

This is a top notch record - buy it now!
This CD has an excellent assortment of different rhythm feels, even going outside the Salsa genre a couple times, but still keeping a consistent artistic approach. Los Mas Valientes' secret weapon is trombonist Rick Faulkner, whose swinging feel, rich tone, and inventive improvisations fill the well written and arranged tunes with soul and energy. The rest of the band are consummate professionals, and right in the pocket. This record will make your day!
