Tino Martin y su Orquesta Review

by Tony Wilds

Clarinetist Tino Martin leads a big band through mostly Latinate covers of mod tunes such as "Love Is Blue" and "Goin' Outta My Head." "Judy in Disquise" and others all sound a bit like the Cugat orchestra of the time, and only "Bailalo Bailador" stands as really uptempo and exciting big-band Latin. The arrangements highlight the trumpets and conga, but piano and other instruments have their moments. Ultimately, it is nonessential and dated.
