Al V. (Al) from HOOVER, AL

He's the king of the Mambo all right. I guess these sides are from fairly recent editions of Puente's orchestra. The sound is good, it's a Concord Jazz CD and they do good work.

CD Reviews

Jazz saxophonist says "Muy Bueno" ( spanish for very good)
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Tito Puente won a grammy for this album, its well deserved. The title cut is awesome, Mambo Diablo starts out calm and builds to a powerhouse of premo latin jazz. If you like Tito Puente I strongly recommend this album. It contains many famous cuts and has a good variety of ballads and fast moving tempos. Anyone with a musical background can apprecate Tito's music. If your background is limited this is a good one to get introduced to salsa. I have only one qualm about Mambo Diablo, the CD could have been longer, at eight songs your are left wanting more. I liked this one, its a good addition to any collection. Muy Bueno"
Classic Puente

"This is classic stuff. Great arrangements of "Lullaby of Birdland," and "Take 5." I don't think you'll find these jazz standards played the same way anywhere else.

Tito displays his versatility on the timbales as well as the vibraphone. The album is well-rounded and well-suited for jazz fans as well as latin fans. You won't be disappointed."
