Rumba For Moderns - Belmonte

Rumba Rumbero
Rumba For Moderns
Belmont and His Orchestra
Produced by Johnnie Camacho
Cover Statue by Leo Amino from Sculpture Center
RCA Victor LSP-1663

Terrific late 50s big band Latin set featuring an outstanding, colorful jacket.

From Billboard - November 17, 1958: Belmont and his work have been making a name for themselves of late, and this album, their second on the label, should increase their rep. Set features bright rumba tunes, and includes "rumba Rumbero," "Bien, Bien, Bien" (as spelled in the review) and "Walter Winchell Rumba," among others. Good dance set here.
