Two Beats, One Soul features music from several international stars -- some based in Cuba and others in the US. And one of the most irresistible songs on the disc features soul man Jon B, who shines on a song that is a beautiful cultural blend, opening with a soft guitar and rhythm section and building into something absolutely special. It is great to hear Jon on record again, and this "Havana Moon" is a perfect vehicle.
