I just want to celebrate" is the theme of Jam Miami: A Celebration of Latin Jazz, recorded "live" in Miami, FL, by legendary jazz masters Chick Corea, Arturo Sandoval, Pete Escovedo, and Poncho Sanchez. Poncho Sanchez's conga mastery is historic on "Poncho Con Su Tambor," and for two minutes, he unloads his percussive thunder on this solo triumph. A Mis Abuelos," a ten-minute masterpiece written by Arturo Sandoval, features his brilliant trumpet and flügelhorn playing surrounded by a dramatic display of Spanish beauty, spirituality, and fire.

Corea, Sandoval, Poncho Sanchez, and former Spyro Gyra vibes player David Samuels are all featured with fiery solos, with Sandoval trading high-flying riffs with fellow trumpeter Claudio Roditi on the latter tune. A tribute to Tito Puente, who was originally a part of this jam before falling ill, Jam Miami features two former members of his group, flutist Dave Valentin and trumpeter Ray Vega, as well as Escovedo, who, with Puente's death, may be the leading timbalero in Latin jazz.
