t was Latin Funk heaven at the Cellar last nite. Cuban trumpet sensation Alexis Baro's sextet took over the place. Drove Baro's tenorman, Jeff King, back to his hotel. On the way, he told me that Alexis has become first call lead player in Toronto - filling the vacuum left by Chykoski. No wonder. He's got chops like Maynard and flies around the horn with the ease of a pajaro Mosca. Cook? This guy never leaves the kitchen. Bassist Paco Luviano, keyboarder Luis Guerra, drummer Rosendo Leon and percussionist Alberto Sanchez all helped stoke the fire that threatened to burn the place down. At the end, fans were on their feet clapping. Not often that happens at the oh- so-cool Cellar. - Gerry Deagle, Vancouver Jazz Forum
