Various Artists Atitetoca
- Words: Selena Hs
- Label: Hi Top
Oh, old school, you hit it right. Original mambo, Afro-Cuban, and other assorted Latin smokers from such pioneers as Willie Bobo and Israel "Cachao" Lopez inspire saucy high heels and unbuttoned collars that stay crisp despite the ever-escalating, hipswaying heat. Aspiring congueros should note the immaculate trombones of Mon Rivera and the Caribbean-flavored pungency of El Super Tumbao's "Bacalo Salao." The classic "Lluvia con Nieve," performed succulently by Rivera, sizzles at the edges. Wipe your mouth, throw your napkin on the table, and find yourself a dance partner.
