Giovanni Hidlago has long set the standard for congueros, both in the terms of technique and musicality. From his days with Batacumbele to his run alongside folks like Dizzy Gillespie and Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Hidalgo has been a consistent symbol of excellence in Latin Jazz. When you see a project that involves Hidalgo, you know that you’ve got some good music ahead.

So when Hidalgo gets together with his peers to jam, you can be sure that it’s going to be a descarga tremenda. That’s just what we get here when Hidlago fronts a group of heavy hitters on Tropical. There’s some serious talent here, including Johnny “Dandy” Rodriguez on bongó, Nelson Gonzalez on tres, David Oquendo on guitar, and Jose Armando Gola on bass. It’s a tipico descarga that lets Hidlago and friends cut loose into an inspiring, free wheeling, and fun jam.
