"We then headed off to see Juan Carlos Alphonso, the leader/arranger and piano player of Dan Den. Out
came the beers and rum, and we started babbling on. He is very smart and
intelligent with a deep grasp of the music world outside of Cuba, which
reflects in the music he makes. He played us bits off his next recording.
His latest release Salsa in Atare (Tumi) will be out in June this year,
but he is already working on the next one. It sounds tough and hard. "
