Caliente: Tango y Mambo Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Fine Tunes' Caliente!: Tango y Mambo -- The Gold Collection is hardly a definitive overview of either tango or mambo, nor should it be seen as an introduction to either genre. Instead, view it as an affordable sampler of both styles and you'll be pleasantly surprised. These are not the best performances of these songs, but since the collection does feature songs by Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, Xavier Cugat, Carmen Miranda, Perez Prado and Tito Puente, it's is an entertaining, effective sampler that may be of interest to curious, budget-minded listeners.
