It is interesting how a foreign language can communicate a feeling better than something expressed in a mother tongue. Cuban and world renowned Eliades Ochoa takes listeners through a journey of emotion on his new release "Estoy Como Nunca". The music on the album incorporates trumpet, guitar and percussion, featuring vocals by David Hidalgo of the Los Lobos. Sometimes light and airy and othertimes forlorn and heartbreaking, my favority song is the completely instrumental "Siboney," dominated by an eight-string guitar. The album is a good introduction to traditional spanish melodies and should bring out the inner romantic dreams of far off places.
