Angel Roman and Mambo Blue’s third record is packed with lively salsa cuts, bold rhythms, and poignantly deep bass tone. On this contemporary Afro-Cuban/Latin jazz album, the Berklee graduate leads his band as an expert tango dancer would— never stepping on toes and boosting his cast’s performances with his tireless energy. Nailing intricate accents at every bend, Roman seems most comfortable in the most complex depths of his music, which is always groovy, regardless of tempo.
