"This time, with lead singer Elena Mindru, a new "voice" was the one of the absolutely exceptional saxophonist Lucian Nagy, who gave consistency to the quintet and has received the most applause at the end of the solos that he had to each song. It's arguably the biggest win of the band!"
"The rhythm section establishes a gentle bolero behind De Castro’s understated melodic reading on “Chinita Linda” followed by a soulful interpretation from saxophonist Lucian Nagy." "The group changes gears with a quick baiao groove as De Castro pays tribute to the influential Brazilian composer on “Hermeto.” Flores plays upon the song’s bluesy tone, mixing equal bits of flash and style until Nagy twists through the funky foundation with a brash soprano sax sound."
