Pure swing, and a ton of salsa class. Papo Lucca takes on a few Cuban tunes-Adalberto Alvarez`s "Caprichosa," Manolin`s "Lejania," Pancho Amat`s "El Alacran", Kurt Weill`s "Mack The Knife" makes an appearance. Horace Silver`s "Nica`s Dream" shows up as does a Christian tune praising God. And it all swings deeply in a way that seems almost lost, that sort of deep in the pocket groove that just makes you feel good. Lucca`s solos-listen to him splinter time and color on "De La Mata Son"-are up to his high standards. The arrangements, with lots of breaks and bass-piano lines, function like the intelligent dance music that this is.
