  • Maraca & His Latin All Stars, 'Reencuentros' has been chosen as a DownBeat's Editors' Pick' of the month of August '11 E-Newsletter (www.downbeat.com/default.asp?sect=reviews). As per Downbeat editor Aaron Cohen, “Orlando Valle “Maraca” seems poised to reach the highest and most exclusive echelon in the world of Afro Caribbean music and Latin Jazz. Maraca is not content to have lush strings and strong percussion serve as the background to his improvisational flights on such standards as “Manteca.” His skills as a composer and arranger keep the music constantly shifting in surprising directions, like on. “Danzón Siglo XXI”
