"up to vol.5 of harlequins series of edmundos classic 1940-1950 recordings.sound quality is good as can be expected unless decca ever decide to release this stuff , remastered from original master tapes, if they still exist.their are several latin styles edmundo tackles here, including 3 or 4 caylpsos. ros had a very effective voice for this type of story tellers song, his warm tone giving the song a friendly feel. also included are :the wedding samba: his biggest hit (3 million copies sold), copacabana one of his most popular sambas, cuanto le gusto (from the carmen miranda film :a date with judy: i believe)and the maharajah of megador agreat novelty number. listening to this c.d evokes a feeling for a bygone time when people relied on artists like edmundo ros and xavier cugat to bring a little latin romance into their living rooms,longhaul jetplanes didn,t exist yet.the muscianship is as always with ros excellant. if you like 1940;s style latin dancebands it dont get much better."
