O’s Notes: Latin vocalist Estrella Acosta leads a quintet focused on songs by Cuban women on Tierra, a swinging, danceable salsa set! Saxophonist Efraim Trujillo shines with melodies complimenting Acosta throughout the set. Samuel Ruiz (b), Enrique Firpi (d) and musical director Marc Bischoff (p, coros) are the core accompaniment. Highlights are “Que Viva Chango”, “Ay Amor”, and “Guasimal”. This is festive music that makes you want to move!
