Brazilian, Afro-Cuban and salsa rhythms speak their tongues with Peter Michael Escovedo and the van Wageningen brothers at the percussion helm. Paul McCandless and Ron Miles infuse the melodies created by James' growling frets, morphing into new shapes and outcomes. Open spaces and full harmonic interludes.
