Irene Torres and the Sugar Devils

Shake up a batch of granizado de limón or maybe piña coladas, close your eyes and let this seven-track EP of originals transport you to Canal Street, Havana, the French Caribbean and beyond. Ms. Torres, ably backed by a core section on drums and bass -- augmented, on selected tracks, by electric piano, organ, sax, trombone and clarinet -- takes us on a melodious tour brushed by sensual breezes, romantic notions and rhythmic push-ups. Best tracks to skirmish with include "Criminal", "King of the Block", "Sticky Fingers" and the set's pièce de résistance, "Before You Go".
