Combine the breezy sound of flute with a funky, tropical, Latin undercurrent and you have the unique sound of Dave Valentin. Tearing down the barriers between contemporary, smooth jazz and Latin jazz, Valentin's music is at once smooth and spicy, and -- like a Sunshower -- bright yet cool. And with guest artists Dave Samuels (vibes), Steve Khan (guitar), and Ed Calle (saxes) sitting in with the virtuoso flautist, one listen makes it clear that everyone came to Dave's party to play - come rain or come shine. FEATURING: Dave Valentin - C flute, alto flute, piccolo (track 5) & assorted flute sounds Bill O'Connell - acoustic piano, electric piano & synthesizers Ruben Rodriguez - electric bass, Ampeg baby bass Robbie Ameen - drums Milton Cardona - congas, chekere & various percussion instruments Dave Samuels - vibes Steve Khan - electric & acoustic guitars Ed Calle - alto & tenor sax Rafael de Jesus - percussion (tracks 3, 5 & 9)
