Absolutely gorgeous!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"To be fair, and truthful really, you pick any of Tjader's Fantasy releases from the 50's and early 60's and you cannot go wrong. Even his early releases like "Plays Mambo" are absolutely stellar. But after he stole away the team of Willie Bobo and Mongo Santamaria from Tito Puente, and he obtained Cuban tenor man Jose "Chombo" Silva, he started producing some real absolute gems. This is one of them. Right there with "Blackhawk Nights," "Latin Concert" and even "Ritmos Calientes" this is Tjader at his finest, doing what he did best. It never, and I mean, NEVER, fails to please anyone I play it for, and has even silenced many who might otherwise accuse Tjader for being another gringo trying to rip off what Fania so aptly called, "our Latin thing." But, he solidly proved to anyone who doubts, he has what it takes and, since I mentioned Puente, even Puente was envious of what Tjader could do on the vibes and what he could lay down with his group. When he got Bobo and Mongo from Puente, fughettaboutit.

Get this, get this, get this. You'll kick yourself for waiting this long."
