AllMusic Review by

It should suffice to say, "It's a Tico," but here goes. One minor gripe is that the album does not credit each orchestra, and in one or two cases it is difficult to tell. Joe Loco seems to be keeping pace with the bombasts of the other two, and his piano solos do not seem too out of place, even adding variety. The title of course was intended to help sell the album -- "Caravan" is a standout -- but also it is a caravan in the sense that the three artists -- as mixed here -- seem to lead each other and sound almost as one, with that glorious Tico sound.
