    Tonight at the Blue Note, trombonist Conrad Herwig held a record release party for his Latin Side of Wayne Shorter. Conrad and Ronnie Cuber on baritone are on either side of young trumpeter Mike Rodriguez. There's a great contrast between Conrad's smooth higher register and Cuber's grainy punchy baritone. Lots of details to catch, lots of rhythm. I liked Adam's Apple a lot, I liked everything - Ping Pong, Tom Thumb, Virgo, El Gaucho, Adam's Apple and Footprints. I think we're playing The Latin Side of Wayne Shorter on WBGO! Conrad said it's not quite in the stores, but it IS on the radio. -- Becca Pulliam
