AllMusic Review by

This was another United Artists Latino release that had Richie Ray exploring a wide variety of genres. "Baba Caroco," "Trumpet Man, Pt. II," "El Afro," "Colorín Colorado," and "Wakamba" are just trinkets in a highly eclectic production. The superb band includes trumpet players Pedro Chaparro and Doc Cheatham, timbalero Mike Collazo, and bongo player Manuel "Manolito" Gonzalez.
