Call me an old purists but someone should of told the complier of this drivel that jazz has nothing to do with dance beats, sampling or acid house unfortunately on this for ever good track (great take by Puente on 'take five' for example) you get several tracks which are as far removed as Jamie Cullen to bebop or Robbie Williams to swing. This continues throughout, look i brought this to get an idea of what latin jazz is and instead i get two c.d's worth of rubbish that no doudt blares out in Spanish bars while English tourists make fools of themselves. Be warned and stick to the real thing.

Good overview of Latin Jazz 26 Jun 2007
By Luister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Be aware, as of this date, the Track Listings are 100% incorrect. This is a two CD set with 25 tracks. This has been pointed out to Amazon a couple of times, to no avail. You will have to check elsewhere on the Web to find the correct listings. High points include Tito Puente's version of Take Five, Pucho's Canteloupe Island, and Ray Barretto's Summertime. Sure, there are some songs I would not have included. Compilations are rarely perfect.
Lating Jazz CD is entertaining. 19 July 2014
By John Norville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD is a great album of a variety of Latin jazz rhythms - cha-cha-chas, mambos, sambas, etc. by many all-stars bands.

The strong rhythms entrance & entertain. Listen or dance. Recommend it.
