Juan-Carlos's magical, poetic music connects Havana, New Orleans, New York and on this occasion, the Monterey Jazz Festival.  Ricky Rodriguez from the Arturo O'Farrill Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra plays the bass. Lewis Kahn of many Fania All Stars recordings plays violin and trombone. Harvey Wainapel from the Bay Area guests on clarinet. With Manuel Valera on piano and  Jorge Leyva on percussion.

"Las islas son malvadas y nadie lo suspecha" means "Islands are evil and no one knows." Listen:
