The Toronto Star, Entertainment

by Geoff Chapman, December 16, 1995


One of the liveliest Toronto Latin bands is led by percussionist Lazar, who is always ready to explore other modes, as this varied, 13-number program indicates.

There are major roles for reedman John Johnson, drummer Mark Kelso, violinist Hugh Marsh and a plethora of guests. The weird shuffling lines of “Toof Ache”, the worldbeaty “Arabian Knights” and pulsating deep fusion grooves are worth lots of play-time.
