2 stars I hear some smooth jazz influence on this one and poppish constructions. They are not to my liking at all. The saxophone is frequently the worst offender in this regard. There is admittedly a good amount of abstraction and experimentation in the music, but it is often combined with boringly predictable structures in the foreground. The only tracks on here that impress me are Niņo (which has some excellent violoncello) and Impresiones de Agosto. Estoy que me muero and Nocturno are OK. The rest is mediocre to poor. Calipso intenso, cask azul is maybe the worst song and features a David Byrne-style vocal delivery. I would only recommend this album to people who like easy-listening latin jazz fusion.

Overall, 2.5 stars rounded down to 2.
