Let's Dance The Merengue - Pete Balboa

Artistry In Rhythm
Let's Dance The Merengue
Pete Balboa And The Nassau Palms Orchestra
Capitol Records ST1349

From Billboard, May 16, 1960: The orchestra involved provide clear, rhythmic renditions, well and crisply performed. Virtually every selection falls into the category of "familiar favorite." some being of recent origin, while other are derived from the classics. As dance recordings, these (Capitol "dance series") rank among the best whether for learners or experts.

This is a very good album featuring upfront percussion that drives the sound throughout the disc.
