"Tito Puente
"Dance Mania" (Legacy Edition)
(Sony Legacy, 2009)
A deluxe 2-CD reissue of the best-known album from the legendary nuyoriquen bandleader Tito Puente... Originally released in 1958, "Dance Mania" was a sizzling set that helped solidify the popularity of the mambo craze, and made Tito Puente a household name. Fifty-plus years later and it still sounds great, as does the 1960 follow-up, "Dance Mania, v.2," which is included here as well. Both original albums were short by today's standards -- about forty minutes long -- and Sony Legacy (bless their little hearts) takes the opportunity to stuff an extra twenty-one tracks on, including outtakes and alternates, as well as a bunch of other tunes from the same era. It's classic mambo and Latin Jazz -- dense musical ideas set to addictive rhythms, with Puente's jaw-dropping percussion throughout. All killer, no filler!"
Tito Puente's Dancemania

"Of all the albums that Tito Puente produced (100+), Dance Mania is my favorite. The sweet latin rythms, musical notes, and classic style of the 50's, 60's and 70's are all rolled up in one. A must have for any serious latin music lover and dancer!"
Definitive classic

"This is one of the top 10 albums, of any genre, recorded in the last
fifty years. Firstly,it was recorded when there was a big breakthrough
in recording stereo techniques.The sound quality is as good as anything
done today. The band personnel included Doc Sevrenson on trumpet and
Ray Barreto on congas, to name a few. The arrangements sizzle caliente
and are super tight.

This a strict dance album with a mix of slow(bolero),medium(son montuno)
and fast(guaguanco)and mambo tunes(before the term salsa) that is well
balanced to keep everyone on the dance floor. Included are a couple of
Tito's all time favorites : El Cayuco and Hong Kong Mambo- which is seminar
on how to play the marimba.
