Xavier Cugat And His Orchestra
Mercury Records f:35d Perfect Presence Sound PSS 6021
Hot Cha! I've said this before, Cugat is my favorite space age Latin music maker. This album is another shinning example of great period lounge with the track titled Apache going above and beyond the call of cool. Cugat could have done an entire album with approach and it would be a total classic today.
And of course, Mercury's engineering from this period is top notch.
