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.|
