Album Notes
"This is what the next chapter in the merger of jazz and Latin music sounds like."
- Bob Blumenthal BOSTON GLOBE

"Fresh Latin jazz worthy of its name and not just Latinized jazz." -LATIN BEAT

"Utililizing a stellar cast of musicians, authentic instruments and unique arrangements, the Peruvian-born guitarist stirs up a percolating pot of rhythms...It's an often challenging work which takes the oft-combined Latin and jazz areas to the next plane." JAZZ TIMES

"An engaging debut that puts yet another twist on the ever-evolving Latin jazz album of musical depth and aural delights." JAZZIZ

"Zellon has opened up to jazz a cultural tradition that has been largely overlooked on this side of the equator." CD REVIEW

"Zellon's composing and arranging skills are impressive throughout the album...based on Latin rhythms-from the familiar tango to the more exotic Afro-Peruvian festejo and lando...Its blend of jazz and Latin idioms is organic and original." THE ORLANDO SENTINEL

Chris Sharp

An engaging mix of Peruvian ethnic styles and contemporary harmonic language.
"Cafe Con Leche" represents the best of what can happen when cultures collide. The memories of Tito Puente and Mario Bauzá are honored by this next logical step into the fusion of Latin rhythmic influences and American jazz. The Peruvian grooves are similar to what we have already experienced from Carribbean sources, but at the same time fresh and different, as subtly different shades of the same colors. Ritchie Zellon has spared no expense in gathering an impressive array of talent spanning several cultures. The result is an engaging mix of Peruvian ethnic styles and contemporary harmonic language accented with stellar musicianship.
