O’s Notes: Gabriel Alegría plays trumpet and flugelhorn while leading the Afro-Peruvian Sextet. The band is very talented and plays music that swings. Ciudad De Los Reyes is a rich blend of tempos and textures composed by saxophonist Laura Andrea Leguía and Alegría along with a cover of “Moon River”. They excite your pulse then temper your spirits across thirteen compositions, an enjoyable experience.
