A brilliant Latin Jazz album from Cuban vocalist Xiomara Laugart and her spectacularly tight band of piano, 2 basses, percussion, Turkish Autoharp, and saxophone. Reviews We should call Xiomara Laugart simply 'La Voz'-the Voice. She is one of the few singers not just in Cuban music, but in any music, to pull off an a capella performance with all the depth and nuance of a full band. -Herman Portocarero
