AllMusic Review by

One of Mario Ortiz's most swinging albums, this effort is a highly danceable must. Musically speaking, this band is one of the most underrated of his time, and it always succeeds in maintaining a fever pitch for the audience, in spite of the ever-fickle musical fads. "Tu Forma de Querer" (performed by Primi Cruz) is a delightfully energetic tune, and "Déjenme Soñar" (also with Primi and Anthony Cruz) is one his very best efforts. As usual, the band's high-key performance, aided immeasurably by Ortiz's arranging skills, is the indisputable focus of the attention. A must for all salsa fans, and another crowning achievement for this great popular music orchestra.
