M27 Proudly presents Hilton Ruiz’s
“Steppin’ with TP- dedicated to Tito Puente”

Featuring Yomo Toro and Dave Valentin*

With Antonio Hart, Geoff Brennan, Leon Lee Dorsey, Jay Hoggard, Chembo Corniel and Willie Martinez.

This album was released in 2005 and we are honored introduce it to the world. M27’s marketing plans were cut short due to Hilton’s untimely death but I am making it a personal effort to share his music with the world.
This is a hot record and I found a few hundred CD’s left which are now a collector’s item.

I hope you listen and enjoy this music and if would like a CD, please write me at [email protected]

Have a blessed day and on this day back in 2006, we lost you brother but today and always, you’re in my heart and thoughts!

Que viva la musica and a free world!!
