amg review
"Prez" was the album that brought Perez Prado, the King of the Mambo, into the American mainstream. On the record, he rearranged pop hits to fit the Latin dance idiom, adding a few genuine mambos for good measure. Though the album wasn't pure mambo, it was simply delightful music and it illustrated how to bring world music to a broader, popular audience. The CD reissue includes five bonus tracks. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
