AllMusic Review by

This collection is a must for world music collectors and fans. A select group of some of the world's best pop world culture performers are assembled for a single price of admission. Astor Piazzolla and the New Tango Quintet give you sex, drama, romance and accordions. They offer the improvisational daring of jazz and the heart of rock and roll. Mario Bauza is one of the originators of fusion, combining African, Cuban and jazz. He has collaborated with such music greats as Cab Calloway and Charlie Parker. Bauza knows jazz and Jaime Torres plays Argentinean folk music, performing on charango. He offers a deep, textural piece with a sense of melancholy. These are just scratching the surface of this world music must.
