Latin jazz sustains a high note on this soundtrack to Calle 54, a new performance documentary by director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque). A dozen lavish tracks by superb musicians from Cuba (Chucho Valdes), Brazil (Eliane Elias), and the Dominican Republic (Michel Camilo), not to mention from late New Yorker Tito Puente, make it clear: Latin music is sexy, but not at the expense of the intellect.
