Entertainment Reviews:

JazzTimes - p.124
"Berroa shows that he is equally adept at straight eight-note swing and Afro-Cuban clave, often seamlessly blending both vernaculars into one organic whole."

Product Description:

Personnel: Ignacio Berroa (drums); David Sanchez (tenor saxophone); Gonzalo Rubalcaba (piano, synthesizer); Edward Simon (piano); John Patitucci (upright bass); Giovanni Hidalgo (congas).
The renowned Cuban jazz drummer Ignacio Berroa's debut album as a bandleader is a percolating fusion of African rhythms, neo bop passages, and Berroa's own trademark technically brilliant yet intuitive playing. "Joao Su Merced" takes a litany of Berroa's personal influences as a foundation for extended forays into Afro-Cuban fusion, while "La Comparsa" alternates between straight-ahead jazz and Cuban-influenced solos. Berroa's supple, supportive accompaniment is an education in jazz drumming, though school was never like this.
