AllMusic Review by

This "New Sound" dated from 1963, when the big bands had been elbowed aside by smaller típico groups. It consisted largely, and effectively, of the old sound with a lead flutist. This was always a working dance band. Some fads and fashions of the time show up, including a "pachanga merengue" no less, but Machito could never be anything but Machito, and Machito is what you get.
