Aided and abetted by the adventurous spirit of collaborator Gilles Peterson, and sympathetic mix by the producer Count, Fonseca is now taking his place as one of the greats of Cuban music. This is the album he was born to make and anyone who still needs to ask ‘who is Roberto Fonseca?' has a fitting answer in this superb album: ‘Yo'.
