Entertainment Reviews:

JazzTimes - 10/96, p.122
"...What might have been solemn self-absorbed musings, by an expert percussionist, are given relief and coloring by the presence of Wayne Wallace, Joe Ford, George Mraz, and Edgardo Miranda."
Option - 11-12/96, p.93
"...the clincher is a funny version of Monk's 'Bemsha Swing.' Who else but a percussionist would transfer major parts of the melody to booming tympani? An odd idea on paper but it gives the tune a perky life that parallels the rest of the album..."

Product Description:

Steve Berrios & Son Bacheche: Steve Berrios (vocals, drums, timpani, percussion); Eddie Bobe (vocals); Joe Ford (soprano saxophone); Wayne Wallace (trombone); Edgardo Miranda (cuatro); George Mraz, Ruben Rodriquez (bass); Elisabeth Monder (coro); Julio Collazo, Pedro Morejon.
Recorded in December 1995 and January 1996.
AND THEN SOME! was nominated for a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Latin Jazz Performance.
Afro-Cuban/jazz percussionist Steve Berrios' second outing as a leader finds him exploring a variety of sources and moods, from an intriguing, spare, rhythmic duo (with soprano sax) on Monk's "Bemsha Swing," to the Latin swing and warm brass voicings of "Homenaje a un Trovador." From the opening notes of the CD, and even allowing for some overdubbing, it is delightfully surprising how full and complex a music he produces from such small ensembles. Too often, "Latin jazz" represents neither genre particularly well. Berrios proves that, in the right hands, it starts with the best of both worlds and takes flight. ~ Janet Rosen
