Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - p.66
4 stars out of 5 -- "Here, bandleader/pianist Oscar Hernandez leads his team into some wildly graceful attacks."
Dirty Linen - p.79
"Through 123 stellar cuts, they offer a crisp and hip-swiveling array of percussion and horns that don't let up, throwing in a rumba and a mambo for good measure."
Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.59) - "[T]he battery of congas, bongos and timbales here is never short of explosive, the horns and vocals soar without fail, and the controlled flamboyance of Hernandez's piano decorates buoyantly cool bass."

With 2007's Grammy-nominated UNITED WE SWING, the Spanish Harlem Orchestra reinforces its revered reputation by offering up a lively set of salsa tunes. Led by pianist/arranger Oscar Hernandez, the horn-heavy New York City-based ensemble shines on exuberant tracks such as "Llego La Orquesta" and "Sacala Bailar," closing the album with a surprisingly simpactico collaboration with Paul Simon on his slice-of-city-life song, "Late in the Evening."
