5.0 out of 5 starsLatin jazz greats at their finest1 Dec 1999
By Norman S. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
One of the best, if not the best, Tjader latin jazz recordings. Willie Bobo, Mongo Santamaria, Al McCibbon, & Vince Giraldi smoke on these tracks. Do yourself a favor!

5.0 out of 5 starsThe First Is Still The Best28 Aug 2005
By Dennis Riness - Published on Amazon.com
Cal Tjader put Latin Jazz and himself on the map with this album which remains one of the finest of the genre if not the best ever. Surrounding himself with nothing but headliners, Mongo Santamaria on congas, Vince Guaraldi piano, Al McKibbon bass and Willie Bobo timbales the synthesis is perfection throughout. Every cut is a classic. If you like Latin Jazz, you will love this album.

5.0 out of 5 starsSimply Perfect!28 Aug 2003
By Ramon Melendez - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of my all time Tjader favorites. This record is just perfect. Play it over and over... it just gets better. Mongo and Willie Bobo on percusion are tight and not heavy handed. Cal's vibe work is as swinging and great as always. A must for all Tjader and latin Jazz fans.
