AllMusic Review by

His trio made some of the greatest Cuban recordings ever and he composed some of the greatest of sones, but Matamoros was a professional musician who worked in many veins. This classic re-release focuses on small-band recordings bridging the older single-trumpet septeto style and the two- or three-trumpet conjunto. No personnel is listed -- a disgrace given the brilliance of all concerned.
