"CD of the month"   (CD review - March 2011)
I have a real treat for all you Salsa & Latin Jazz fans. I recently had the rare pleasure of getting my hands on Joe Falero & DC Latin Jazz All Stars debut CD - !Latin Flavor! Joe Falero is a local Washington, DC celebrity and remarkable talent, presents a smorgasbord of silky smooth, sophisticatedly tasteful, and an ultra classy blend of Salsa & Latin Jazz specifically tailored with the bailador (dancer) in mind. The entire CD, with the exception of Do For Love and the last song, L.F. (Salsa Jazz) is strictly instrumental. By the way, you should have seen me at home making up my own lyrics (soniando) to some of the instrumental songs on !Latin Flavor! I’m so glad no one was there to witness that. Anyway, back to the review. The first song, Latin Flavor, which is also the title song for the CD starts off smooth and then very soon has you wanting to dance with the closet person next to you. Song numero tres (number three), Green Dolphin St is what I would call a dinner salsa (yes, I said “dinner salsa”) that can be played in the background while entertaining guests or having lovely dinner with your significant other. Song number four, Tribute to Tito, takes Tito’s “Oye Come Va’” and skillfully recreates it, not into another Cha Cha Cha, but instead as a fun and lively Guaganco for all you dancers out there. “Wow” was all I could say! For all of my non-Spanish speakers there is song number five, Do For Love. Song numero siete (seven), Tribute To Dizzy marries Salsa and Jazz into one smooth danceable work of art. Lastly, song number eight, L.F. (Salsa Jazz) is a true dancers delight. See you at the Salsa Block Party and most definitely at the 2nd Annual Baltimore Salsa Fest! You can purchase your copy of Joe Falero & DC Latin Jazz All Stars -!Latin Flavor! today by visiting http://www.baltimoresalsafest.com Also, be sure to catch Joe Falero & DC Latin Jazz All Stars at the Baltimore Salsa Fest on Saturday, March, 26 2001 performing live for your dancing pleasure.

"Packing a heavy groove with a light touch, DCLJAS' CD !Latin Flavor! continues a tradition of Latin-jazz from the Nation's Capitol that reflects DC itself: intelligent and funky!"

Jim Byers, host, WPFW 89.3 FM's "Latin Flavor/Classic Edition"

Joe Falero & DC Latin Jazz All Stars is a blend of classic covers and fresh original material . I have been playing it every day for the last 2 weeks. They can take any song and make you dance. They are swinging.

Joe,

I think the CD has a nice live sound...not too polished which is what I prefer. The musicianship is great on it as well. This will help with bookings.

Gabo Tomasini with Entour Entertainment

The JOE FALERO & DC Latin Jazz All Stars "Latin Flavor" CD has been in rotation in my car since December 2009. My favorite, "Green Dolphin Street", is classic yet has a perfect blend of a latin groove that is irresistable. An awesome CD!

Faleros' !Latin Flavor! is a great musical production to be enjoyed anywhere, with talented musicians performing masterly and vibrant arrangements for our enjoyment. The solos and isolations throughout each song provide wonderful opportunities to relish on you favorite instruments, whether it’s the percussion, piano, the horns, or the cords. The arrangements musicality and timing precision provide a refreshing mambo perspective inspired on standards of Latin jazz like Watermelon Man and Oye Come Va, providing for highly inspiring tunes for the dancers that pride themselves on creative and expressive performing as well as for the distinguished listener that enjoys a well put together song either on a long unhurried car trip or while relaxing at home.
