Chaquito And His Orchestra
Columbia CL 1293
From March 16, 1959 Billboard: Chaquito and the band turn in a set of more or less authentic cha cha selections – that is to say, these are not famous standard songs set to cha cha rhythms. For this reason the set is refreshing and furthermore, the group has a good big band sound with interesting flourishes from trumpet lead, a la earlier Prado sides. Fine for dancing and for Latin atmosphere music.
