All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
As part of Bob James' Tappan Zee Records agenda, house producer Jay Chattaway was handed the Fania All-Stars, no doubt with instructions to make a hit record with them as he did with Maynard Ferguson that year. So he did -- with a little help from James on electric piano, other New York studio experts like Eric Gale, Randy Brecker, John Tropea, Joe Farrell, and Jon Faddis, and, as an integral part of the All-Stars, Mongo Santamaria. The results are not at all bad, nor irredeemably diluted.

The results are not at all bad, nor irredeemably diluted.

    Bravo!

    This recording is a classic - a ''must have''for all latin-jazz enthusiasts. The sounds are as fresh as today. I can't keep it off my CD player.
