The number 23 has followed singer-songwriter Jorge Moreno like a mystical star since the day he was born, April 23, 1975. And there it was again on the door of his Los Angeles hotel suite, Room 1723, like an omen on his arrival for this year's Latin Grammy ceremony. The seven also holds meaning for the creative Cuban American, who was competing for the prestigious best new artist award. Was the remaining number a sign he would win? Was he "The One"?

Jorge Moreno, Miami's most promising singer-songwriter, seems to have it all -- looks, personality, talent, an acclaimed 2001 debut album and a Latin Grammy as best new artist. So why can't he find an audience? The lamentably small group that turned out Friday for Moreno's show at the Conga Room discovered that the slender, shaggy-haired guitarist also has a compelling stage presence. This was his first L.A.

Novice vocalist Jorge Moreno comes from the Nick at Nite generation, youngsters raised on reruns of such early television shows as "I Love Lucy." The Miami kid grew up and learned to download "Babalu" from Napster, using guerrilla technology to preserve and pass on the Afro-Cuban composition made famous by Desi Arnaz on the 1950s sitcom. Later this month, the 26-year-old Cuban American makes his own recording debut on Maverick Musica, the new Latin division of Madonna's Maverick label.

In the top Latin category, the race is anybody's guess, because all the nominees are newly emerging artists. Best Pop Album: Miami's Jorge Moreno's Latin Grammy as last year's best new artist makes him the likely winner, though Bacilos, a folksy Miami trio, and Sin Bandera, a smooth duet from Mexico, have strong publicity pushes behind them. The daring (and deserving) choice: Argentina's Diego Torres, whose "Color Esperanza" is an uplifting anthem for a troubled Latin America.

For all the talk about global culture, pop music continues to be a relatively segregated pastime. On year-end top-10 lists for 2001, critics still skewed toward rock and rap and rumba, with remarkably little overlap. My list, for example, is entirely Latin. That may seem limited to some, but an entire musical universe falls under that umbrella. Salsa alone could consume a critic full time, not to mention other genres, from mariachi to rock en espanol.

But more than an opportunity to showcase Cabas' inspiring Caribbean fusion songs, the night was historic for his homeland.
