Dance Mania (Legacy Edition)

Mambo's golden age was in full swing when Tito Puente released Dance Mania, Vol. 1 in 1958, and he was its undeniable emperor. The combination of his madly swinging horn section and the percolating power of Puente's timbales and Ray Barretto's congas on the feverish "3-D Mambo" makes for some thrilling dance-floor moments. The romantic balladry of "Estoy Siempre Junto a Ti" is just as impressive. Puente even finds time to venture into exotica with his Asian-flavored marimba lines on "Hong Kong Mambo."
In my family's household sunday afternoons were always great. I remember dancing to Tito Puente, and Carlos Santana, and Sergio Mendes with my mom while my dad grilled. This album is definitely hands down my favourite!
Classic hands down!! Great mixture of mambo & cha cha..
