09/14/04 CD Baby Review: "Flashes of red, a high heel buzzing past your head, and the air beaten by flinging ponytails is an image you might associate with this fiery, salsa-powered Latin jazz ensemble. The dance floor will fill up in a rush with Mario Flores' band; he brings all the needed zest and passion to the music, reminding us why salsa cannot only be listened to- it must be danced."
05/12/04 "'Cocinando' ("Cookin' ") is a great introduction to Latin jazz if you're not familiar with the genre and like a favorite warm blanket if you are." - Mac McDonald "HotMusic" Monterey County Herald
04/09/04 "The State Theatre, in association with KRVR The River and Ole' Productions was proud to present a hot-bloded, exuberant, sensual, and intoxicating evening of Latin jazz and salsa music on Friday, January 26th, at the State Theatre, located in Modesto, CA"
04/18/04 "Now, Flores is releasing his second album, Cocinando, a collection of 11 songs that could be easily placed between his father's Cal Tjader and Mongo Santamaria records." - Stuart Thornton "A Latin Original" Go Magazine
03/24/04 "After more than two decades of playing Latin jazz, Flores said it still moves him. 'The genre is different than what other people are playing, but it's a genre that I still love playing.'" - Tom Leyde "Mario and his cats dig Jazz from the Heart" - The Californian
