O’s Notes: Drummer and bandleader Fernando Garcia plays punctuated beats that define the Latin groove on this recording. He shines on “The Element” along with guitarist Gabriel Vicéns. Special guest Miguel Zenón (a sax) drives the melody on the title track. Jan Kus plays tenor sax elsewhere with a slamming rhythm section that includes Dan Martinez (b), Gabriel Chakarji (p) and Victor Pablo on congas. All of the musicians get some well-deserved time in the spotlight.“Guasábara, Puerto Rico is Afro-Caribbean Bebop in fine form!
