O’s Notes: Pianist and composer Michael Eckroth took the extra time afforded by the pandemic to focus on genuine Afro-Latin music. All of the songs have a recognizable, head-bobbing groove that is easy to embrace. The vibe is rather exotic on “Superspreader”, with really nice bass work from Alex Ayala on “Invernadero”. We also enjoyed “Soul Cha” with special guest John Fedchock (tb), “And So It Goes”, and the Latin vibe on “Exotic Particles” featuring trumpeter Brian Lynch.
