AllMusic Review by

Aragon was credited with creating the chachacha, and remains to this day the finest of the more polished charangas. The danzon, a 19th-century ballroom dance, was the chachacha's basis. Aragon plays both here in a classic '50s style which illustrates transmutation of the danzon's old-world elegance into something more suited to the mid-century.
