Folks are probably familiar with the whole Cuban sensation which seems to be taking the world by storm these days, with the likes of the Buena Vista Social Club and the Afro Cuban All-Stars literally everywhere you look (note: this is not a bad thing). Percussionist Bobby Matos and his Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble take bits of that Latin sound and apply it to jazz. Unlike the ubiquitous Cuban folks though, Matos's sound is quite a bit more jazz and a bit less Latin.
