That's great. Cool when the crowd joined in...

Glad you liked it - this actually comes from a 2-sic set that they released a few years ago - it's just called "Live." There's also a DVD, and that's well worth getting. The image quality isn't always great, but the performances are amazing. (Both are on Stern's, though I'm not sure about availability - www.descarga.com would probably be able to get them.)

For the 1st half of this cut, Shoubou is actually on his knees, singing to the trumpeter. It's a lot of fun - he has tremendous stage presence.

I'll have to hit Descarga for that. Would like some good Afro-Salsa stuff on DVD!
