AllMusic Review by

Perez Prado had some huge hits with trivial numbers. But he was also a mambo innovator a la Machito, swing voicings (with a strong Stan Kenton influence) to the Cuban roots, and his sound was extremely distinctive. A retrospective like this one, which includes most of his best material and little junk, belongs in any well-rounded collection.
