“This is what the next chapter in the merger of jazz and Latin music sounds like.” – Bob Blumenthal
-Boston Globe

“Fresh Latin jazz worthy of its name and not just Latinized jazz.” 
-Latin Beat

“Utililizing a stellar cast of musicians, authentic instruments and unique arrangements, the Peruvian-born guitarist stirs up a percolating pot of rhythms…It’s an often challenging work which takes the oft-combined Latin and jazz areas to the next plane.”
– Jazz Times

“An engaging debut that puts yet another twist on the ever-evolving Latin jazz movement…an album of musical depth and aural delights.” -Jazziz

“Zellon has opened up to jazz a cultural tradition that has been largely overlooked on this side of the equator.”
-CD Review

“Zellon’s composing and arranging skills are impressive throughout the album…based on Latin rhythms-from the familiar tango to the more exotic Afro-Peruvian festejo and lando…Its blend of jazz and Latin idioms is organic and original.” -The Orlando Sentinel
