Masterpiece "Alma Latina," reviewed in the Albuquerque Journal (July 24, 1998)
This is music to dream by, to relax by. Itís music to rock your baby by.
So itís an expansion project, a whole new bag, for the popular Albuquerque ensemble of Hector Pimentel and Leyenda.
The instrumental recording has a few familiar boleros like "Sabor a Mi" and "Solamente Una Vez," which are reminiscent of the Edie Gorme-Trio Los Panchos stylings.
But itís also brimming with other non-Latin sentimental standards, like "My Way," "Music of the Night," "If I Were a Rich Man," and concludes with "What a Wonderful World."
As a result, the album title,
which translates to "Latin Soul," is a little misleading. Regardless,
the reward is in the listening.
