It is always very exciting and challenging for a band to record a new album with a different line up and still maintain the sound of the band. Within the first minutes of recording Bye-Ya was assured that their new setup (with Brian Lynch on trumpet and Enrique Firpi on drums) was perfect to achieve the unique Bye-ya!-sound, Latin jazz with a strong emphasis on jazz. Further Arrivals consists mostly of original compositions.
The title song "Further Arrivals" is a composition by Brian, played in a very open Guaguanco-style, it is a Latin-jazz theme in `Bye-ya! tradition`.
"Dance The Way You Want To", another tune of Brian, is a funky Cha-Cha, an Homage to the Boogaloo era.
Descarga #1 is a tune by Mick and is a Cuban style 6/8 descarga.
Another composition of hers is the beautiful ballad "Downunder", played as a Bolero.
"Mellotone" and "Tranquilidad" are two Latin-jazz tunes composed by Randal.
"Tranquilidad" as the only quartet piece on the album is a piano feature with a beautiful Montuno at the end.
