A Latin Jazz descarga loosely based on Cachao’s “Las Boinas”. Here Alexander employs a clever call and response maneuver with his trumpet and the audience, after taking a monster solo. Piano and percussion solos follow. The custom coro they added is “Sabroso, sabroso, Havana D’ Primera, sabroso”.

Recorded June 1, 2013 at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in San Francisco.
