First Listen: Alexis Baro - Reencuentro

Today’s First Listen come to us from one of the most dynamic musicians in Toronto. It’s Guilty Pleasure, the new album from trumpeter and composer Alexis Baro.

From Cuba, Alexis has been in Toronto since 2001 - making a big splash when he arrived for the power and clarity of his trumpet playing. Alexis was a member of the late Archie Alleyne’s Kollage, and Guilty Pleasure is his fourth recording as leader.

"Reencuentro" is a Spanish word which means reunion, and it's your First Listen for September 11.
