Now's the Time: Makuza
I have a Fania problem. I just can't lay off the constant stream of reissues from the famed salsa label. My addiction only enhances the appeal of Kansas City's Makuza. While I'm sure members of the band would agree that they're not the equals of Willie Colon and Ruben Blades, they're capable of capturing much of the exuberance associated with the music's top stars. Makuza performs Thursday, May 27, at the Blue Room.
