" You've got to hand it to these musicians for
not cluttering up their new album  with what
might  be mediocre originals in choosing the
music for this performance.  
The compositions, whether originating from
Latin, rock, or  jazz sources, do the job and
keep the concert  tuneful and lively.
"

" . . . DeLaney and Viavattine are outstanding
on this beautifully recorded live concert.
"       
                          
 Ed Trefzger, Jazzweek.com
" . . . this Latin jazz combo really nails the genre. The tunes are a good mix of standards and three originals by DeLaney.
Saxophonist Viavattine deserves applause for knowing how to play a muscular tenor sax ; his work on Softly,  Five Kings
and Afro Blue displays sure-footed work that harkens back to pre-Sheets Of Sound Coltrane. DeLaney shows a consistent
knowledge of pianistics in salsa/Latin jazz and his arrangements convey the right touch. Percussionists Colon and
Antonetti provide
the fire engine that drives the band."

  "One of Rochester's fine bands performs a range of originals, a few standards (including Summertime and My Favorite Things, which
have become jazz evergreens); and a trio of tunes from famed jazz repertoires, Chick Corea's Armando's Rumba, Miles Davis' Seven
Steps To Heaven and Cedar Walton's  N.P.S. The "mambo" aspects of the band come from a first-rate rhythm section --
"Tio" Antonetti and Freddy Colon on various drums, congas, timbales and bongos, and Hector Diaz on bass. . . The musicality of this
band is always first-rate, but members are at their best when the music soars over sheer rhythmic joy, as in Tio's Tune and Sunny.
