Incendiary percussion and overwhelming passion. These are the keys to this compilation. When you blend latin and jazz the result is, at the same time, both and none of its ingredients.

The percussionists (several on each track) are seemingly effortless and perfectly coordinated, not to underrate the brass sections.

<em>Long Long Summer</em> and <em>Blue Sands</em> are exquisite ballads. The counterpoint is the frantic 11'56" <em>Sakeena</em>, named after Art Blakey's newborn daughter.

In the 1950s and 1960s, when all these recordings took place, the mambo craze inherited Gillespie and friends' Cubop, and this is exactly what this charming collection reflects.
