Mondo Mambo: The Best of Perez Prado

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg

Overall, the album has everything that a good Perez Prado album should have, and little of what a poor album might have. The squealing, blasting trumpets and tight, competitive rhythm section work that give Prado's arrangements their true hallmark douse the whole of the album. That's a good thing for mambo fans.
