  “Orozco is more than another jazz piano player looking for an in with the mainstream music company. He’s a deeply imaginative, crazy brilliant fusion artist who wields his instrument with equal flair in three of the toughest music styles to conquer. Others have split jazz into fusions. But Orozco takes his jazz fusion to a whole other level.” Read more

  "What starts out as a relatively straight-forward Latin Jazz recording slowly reveals a dynamic array of facets… most of them nuanced, but often quite startling… much like watching the slow procession of folds of an origamist at work.  Orozco’s mix of Cuban, Venezuelan and Jazz doesn’t settle in to just one point of view, and the ever-changing panorama is one of the album’s best features.  The piano/keyboards of Orozco, bassist Rodner Padilla, percussionist Francisco Vielma and drummer Euro Zambrano are joined by a solid group of guest musicians, including Paquito D’Rivera, Pedrito Martinez and Yosvany Terry (among others)".
