Basilio Marquez is one of the top trumpet players in Cuba today, leading the new breed of trumpeters. He has perfomed with Chucho Valdes and Irakere for many years, and this is the first recording under his own name with his group Eclipse. According to Chucho Valdes, "now (Basilio) surprises US with the new group Eclipse, an incredible band of young talent. His first recording is phenomenal, first class music." Basilio and Eclipse will be touring the U.S. in early and late 2003.
