AllMusic Review by

Illyana is a rarity in the contemporary U.S. field, a version of the 1940s and '50s Latin-pop stars who built a show out of a wide range of styles rather than sticking to salsa, merengue or whatever. She and her band swing mightily on "Tengo Mambo Heat," but she also struts her stuff very satisfactorily on merengue, ballads, and nifty bilingual "Miami Sound" variant, "Mr. Hollywood."
