Recorded 11/4/58 at Third Street Studios, Los Angeles, CA.

Great 1958 stereo recording of Cha Chas, Mambos and R&B tunes by hot Hollywood-Latin Orchestra led by former Perez Prado alto star, Rene Bloch (Rene Bloch was also the alto soloist on the Johnny Otis Orchestra's 1945 hit version of "Harlem Nocturne"). All 15 selections are arranged by Paul Lopez, Roberto Gil and Rene Bloch. Arrangements and performances are tight and quite jazzy. Sound is excellent with wide stereo separation prevalent at the time.
