Fatal Mambo is not so fatal
(2 out of 5 stars)
"Other reviewers claim Fatal Mambo made their feet move, but I'd say that may be because of the rhythms themselves and not the band. Fatal Mambo is made up of fine musicians who understand Afro-Cuban music well (among other rhythms), but they lack the tightness, the power, the magic one can hear in well known bands such as Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Larry Harlow, and so forth. A acouple of tracks (Salsaioli & Tu Le Sais) reminded me of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, but again fell short in tightness, power, and magic. I was disappointed the band did not credit the composers of some of the well pieces they reinterpreted. Overall, this CD is interesting from the listening point, but very weak from the dancer's perspective."
