<I>Los Hombres Calientes</I>

The name describes the band, and its sound. Frank talks with drummer Bill Summers and trumpeter Irvin Mayfield from Los Hombres Calientes, or, The Hot Men, a group that blends African musical traditions with home grown New Orleans jazz. This week, the eclectic band, which actually does include a female member, releases its third CD, Volume 3, New Congo Square, and the music will surely make you want to groove. (12:45) (NOTE: Volume 3, New Congo Square is available on Basin Street Rec
