Eastern Vibrations. According to the liner notes written by Leonard Feather El Camino was Hilton Ruiz second recording as a soloist. The tune El Camino The Road is an elegant number that starts with a short flute solo, features the güiro throughout the entire number, and includes solos from practically all band members. West Side Blues is also an excellent example of Hilton Ruiz, jazz incorporating jazz, blues, and latin rhythms, the entire group shines including some really nice guitar work and a really bluesy trumpet solo
