Spanish Harlem Orchestra

Once you put this CD on I defy you to resist the urge to dance along to it. Sounding a lot like a live CD, with even an introduction of the many band members on the first track, Spanish Harlem Orchestra's music encapsulates all the passion and joy of Latin music. Even their slower songs make you want to move to the rhythms they create. Salsa music is given its due by this band, led by pianist/arranger Oscar Hernandez. As respected as they are, they have even coaxed the legendary Paul Simon to make a guest appearance on the album. They won a Grammy Award for their last recording and I see another one in their future.
