Aguanko - Unidad - New Release Review


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Unidad, by Aquanko and it's a heaping plate of Latin flavored jazz. Opening with Kintsugi, a fleet footed mambo, features Alberto Nacif on congas, Jose Espinosa on timbales and percussion, and Patrick Prouty on bass. Featuring hot brass by Charlie Miller on trumpet, Russ Miller on sax, Rick Roe on piano and Christopher Smith on trombone this is a solid opener. Un Poco Cubop has excellent mambo rhythm, with strong piano and timbales work under the perfectly blended horn work of Smith, Charlie Miller and Russ Miller. Another mambo, Interception really moves, With tight horn interplay between Smith and the Millers as well as driving piano by Roe and Nacif's confident congas work, this track is explosive. Wrapping the release is Espacio Verde with it's infectious rhythm. A stellar piano solo by Roe, a warm sax solo by Russ, Charlie's articulate trumpet work and Nacif and Espinosa really accentuating the rhythm, this is a hot closer.
