O’s Notes: Conguero Ray Mantilla leads a five-piece Latin jazz band for his latest release. The Connection is a set of ten songs centered around Ray’s work on congas and timbales. It captures numerous years of experience as a sideman for countless jazz legends. We found ourselves patting our feet and bopping our head while listening, a sure sign of infectious rhythms! Mantilla serves up a winner here.
