"I discovered the music of Mongo Santamaria in the mid-90's. Ever since I've been trying to get as many of his work as possible. My collection is quite extensive and, not surprisinly, everyday I'm more amazed by his work. I think that Mongo is a genius and this record, Mambo Mongo, is his masterpiece. This is a CD that I enjoyed from the very beginning to the very last second. Check out La Mogolla, my favorite song of all time(the intro is on my answering machine). It's a shame that Mongo is close to retiring(or retired) and will prevent us from enjoying more of his work. Mongo, Mucho Ache!!!!!!"
This CD is guaranteed to make you happy.

"I'm listening to this CD right now - and I'm in a better mood than I can even describe - this music just makes you feel extremely happy and alive - and it soothes at the same time - what could be better than that? "Mambo Mongo" works its way up to electrifying, and "Ninos Del Mundo" is just a beautiful piece. I don't have any other Mongo Santamaria CD's, but I know I need to get some. The only thing I ever knew about him before getting this CD was that my Mom had his record "Watermelon Man" when I was a kid. This is classic, great Latin Jazz with a lot of elegance."
