O’s Notes: Guitarist Daniel Santiago leads a highly energetic quintet through a dozen of his compositions. His team is Josué Lopez (sax), Vitor Gonalves (p), Gito Wirtti (b) and either Edu Ribeiro or Marcio Bahia on drums. We felt their pulse immediately on the opener “Old City”. The vibe is a cool, Latin, fusion that is easy to embrace especially on “Letter To The World” and “Angola’s Dance”. There is a lot to enjoy here as Santiago makes a strong statement with an album that will appeal to contemporary, fusion and Latin audiences.
