AllMusic Review by

At their best, the Latin big bands rivalled their American cousins with breathless charts, fierce playing, and elegant musicianship -- often at the same time. Although the Musart collection 15 Exitos de las Grandes Orquestas does include several great performances -- "La Almendra," "La Paloma," "Nunca" -- it loses nearly all of its points for sheer lack of information. Besides the customary failure to provide liner notes or recording credits, these intrepid compilers didn't even include information on the performers. Buyer beware: great music lies ahead, but little of it will be identifiable.
