Album Notes

Produced by legendary drummer, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, Tino Gonzales' album 'Smiles For Miles', has all the makings of a classic. Mixing Blues and Latin Rythms, adding the right amount of Funk and Fusion -- the recipe for noteworthy music is clearly defined here. Tino's gutsy, Blue vocals combined with searing guitar leads intertwine with some of the finest assembled studio and marquee players. The performances are as deserving of praise as the artists themselves. Multiple Grammy winner Freddy Hubbard, in fine form, gives outstanding deliveries on each creditable track. The wonderful Paul Harris furnishes the most memorable piano solo on the title track, a melodic Latin Blues Fusion number that blends Hubbard with a soulful measure of Gonzales and company. Tom Washington's arrangements of the Phenix Horns Esquire illustrates why they keyed countless million selling albums. Of course, the incomparible "King of the Beat", Bernard Purdie displays his inimitable driving meter, as well as steering the production through its grand conclusion.
