AllMusic Review by

Rimac was an ex-pat Peruvian who ran a successful "rumba" band in Germany and England. There are a couple of fine things here, including an outstanding solo by an unknown trumpeter, an early conga and some pop-Brazilian numbers. But despite a (wrong) suggestion that Rimac introduced the rumba to the U.S., this is definitely a byway -- though one with a lot of charm.
