I can't believe you haven't received any comments yet on this wonderful hub. I certainly love latin jazz and salsa but what I truly love about your hub presentation here is many of the artists on this list I am not familiar with so it's a real pleasure to find out about new music - which for me is always so nice - thank you for your efforts here and also thank you for your royal endorsement of my humble little hubpage - coming from someone special like you really means a lot.
