Your playing is beyond what I normally enjoy when it comes to horns in arrangements. I get this fantastic vibe every time I do hear your creations. You have a flow that is completely original yet echoes some of the pioneers who more than likely made you want to to play to begin with. I hear your own unique style & then I also hear raindrops from Bacharach to early Procol Harum arrangements. Damn fine playing Hack.

REFLECTIONS takes me to one of the big ballrooms of fancy hotels in La Havan, Cuba in the 50's.

Para Siempre is quite magical!!! The horn is brilliant and melodious and the instrumentation is gorgeously interweaved into it
