AllMusic Review by

Don't be misled by the title. True, Ochoa, a master of the jovially batty sonora style, is pretty down-home sounding in voice, accordion and material. But this is your basic irresistible vallenato, both quartet and sonora (mad trombone added). A particular plus here is that he doesn't just do cumbias but ranges over porros, paseos and all sorts of other goodies.
