Overview

Let's Dance: The Best of Ballroom Foxtrots & Waltzes was designed to cash in on the swing and lounge revival of the '90s by offering a selection of foxtrots and waltzes, along with a choreography and beats-per-minute-guide, designed for hip young swingers. Despite a few selections that are a little too slick or schmaltzy, the music on the collection is generally first-rate, offering eight foxtrots and seven waltzes. The featured artists -- including Andy Williams, Harry James, the Manhattan Transfer, Mel Tormé, Percy Faith, 101 Strings, Melissa Manchester, Engelbert Humperdinck and Henry Mancini -- are uniformly strong, but what really matters is the rhythm, sway and the music, and on that level, Let's Dance: The Best of Ballroom Foxtrots & Waltzes fulfills its purpose quite well.
