Notes & Reviews:

"South-of-the-border crossover with an appealing difference... Daryl Runswick's tangy arrangements of Latin dance favorites, pop standards and light classics sound as if they were written expressly for massed cellos (with rhythm backing). Conductor Geoffrey Simon puts his 24 London cellists through their paces smartly. A delightful and self-recommending addition to Cala's London Sound Series." -Chicago Tribune
