Album Review
Reviewed 2011-05-26
Wicked good compilation of classic big band Latin jazz/dance music from the 60’s and 70’s. Brassy, sassy, sexy and full of style. Featuring gorgeously tight arrangements and solid, sophisticated performances full of fun and fire. Every track is a standout and the accompanying booklet full of great info. Gotta be one of the best world CDs of the year so far.

1. Sexy, driving midtempo romp w/delicious clarinet.
2. Fun and dishy cumbia swing w/extra good brass.
3. Nicely swinging percussion drives this track w/a bit of muted sound.
4. Tight brass and happy percussion, snaking clarinet. Sweet & playful.
5. Fun and squeaky intro to a sort of deadpan cumbia w/style.
6. Extra stylish big band jam w/a classic sound. So delicious!
7. Fast brass and percussion meld into a bright and stylish mix.
8. Hot and driving perc/brass/vocals. Infectiously energetic.
9. Stylish wiggle w/some extra good vocals and lots of percussive style.
10. Jazzy and passionate w/solid piano/perc/vocals. Extra hip.
11. Instant fire. Percussion/vocals/keyboards/brass. Yow!
12. Starts w/band warming up then it’s a funky, serious descarga.
13. Hot and wiggly dance w/wild percussion solos.
14. Violins & piano add nice style to this upbeat jam.
15. Sweet clarinet leads into midtempo jazz wiggle. Style for days.
16. Midtempo horns at counterpoint w/driving percussion. Cool.
17. Cool vocals highlight this midtempo drive. Horns & perc shine.
18. Brassy and fast w/accordion, guitar, clarinet. Great stuff.
19. Ultra stylish big band jazz cumbia. Classic and seriously wow.
