Track of the day and new in the one luv spot we luck out today in a latin-jazz sound playground on this from one of the world's greatest alto saxophone auteurs - the Puerto Rico born composer of considerable clout and imagination Miguel Zenón here with 'Navegando (Las Estrellas Nos Guían)' that features Puerto Rico band Los Pleneros de La Cresta which in its instrumentation has panderos (tambourine), percussion and vocals within its sound.

Drawn from Música De Las Américas (Miel Music) out this Friday the project is described by Zenón as ''music inspired by the history of the American continent: not only before European colonization, but also by what’s happened since - cause and effect”. The San Juan-born maestro leads his classic quartet of pianist Luis Perdomo, bassist Hans Glawischnig and drummer Henry Cole often present at the heart of the best of what he does. The band is formidable live as we discovered in 2009 hearing them outdoors at the Malta Jazz Festival as they performed on a stage that overlooked Valletta's vast harbour.
