Machito!!!, on the Dutch label Timeless, is classic Machito, albeit in modern style and with the master's failing voice. Whether 1980s salsa or Latin big-band, dance-orchestra bombast, the sound is distinctly Machito; but the voice, struggling as it is, sounds less like the Machito of old than one would hope. There is no heavy Latin jazz or ground-breaking playing here, just the first-class Machito organization triumphantly carrying on into the modern age.
