AllMusic Review by

Jack Jack Jack is a fun collection of Xavier Cugat recordings spanning 1947-1949, including some of his co-written originals, such as "Un Poquito de Amor" and "It's Easy When You Know How." These 25 enjoyable, upbeat Latin big band numbers move from guaracha to rumba, beguine to samba. An added bonus is the variety of featured vocalists, such as smooth sound of Dorothy Porter, as well as the equally classic tones of José Moneró, Bob Graham, and Otto Bolivar.
