My wife and I were at your show last night at the Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe. The band was/is absolutely fantastic!!! Smooth, slick, clean, cool Latin Jazz. Great arrangements. Great dynamics. Great grooving. Great soloing. Great musicianship. We were in front and at one point we turned around to see THE ENTIRE ROOM dancing behind us in between the tables!!! Can't wait to see you guys again!!!!!!!!
