Product Description:

Personnel: Xavier Cugat; Abbe Lane, Otto Bolivar (vocals).
Includes liner notes by Bruce Bastin.
Digitally remastered by Charlie Crump.
Harlequin Records presents Xavier Cugat and his orchestra, the way they sounded live and in person at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel during the years 1950-1954. This is Latin big band dance music -- heavy on the rhumbas and mambos -- with a strong jazz influence. Indeed during their best passages Cugie's crew could easily be mistaken for Machito & His Afro-Cuban Salseros. Vocalists Otto Bolivar and Abbe Lane convey the lyrics in tidy Spanish and accessible English, ensuring acceptance from the audibly wined and dined Truman-Eisenhower era audience. Among many dozens of Cugat compilations, this one rates somewhere amidst the uppers. ~ arwulf arwulf
