We are all get busy. Life in this multitasking world catches up to us and things fall between the cracks.

When that happens at Alt.Latino World Headquarters, we miss sharing music with you. So in the spirit of getting as much of this year's amazing music out as possible, I pulled a big stack of CDs into the studio for a listen back to the ones that got away.

This week we also cross genres a bit and indulge my other passions: jazz and Latin jazz. It felt so good to do that we may just do it a bit more in 2017.

For now, here's to peace, love, happiness and good health to you all from team Alt.Latino!
