Editorial Reviews

Released in conjunction with the book and the traveling exhibition of the same name, La Combinación Perfecta is a superb collection of classic Latin jazz performed by some of its most important innovators. From established Latin legends Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaría to renowned jazz icons Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, this release is a riveting journey through one of the most important American genres to emerge out of the 20th century. For the casual listener, this collection of landmark recordings outlines the historical development of Latin jazz. Simultaneously, for the aficionado, it provides fresh insight into the musical connections and innovations that make the tradition a rich and dynamic genre.

Top Customer Reviews

By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel TOP 500 REVIEWER on October 21, 2009
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The most important aspect of this compilation is its being issued by the Smithsonian, meaning that it is scholarly and historically rooted rather than a selection from some label's archive. Indeed, it was produced to accompany an exhibit and a book. The Columbia Essential Latin Jazz, isn't. Not even close. The Putumayo anthology at least has the major pioneer Latino band leaders. With the Smithsonian compilation, however, we hear the key historic recordings, many of the same presented in the recent PBS series on Latin Jazz: Machito's Tanga, Dizzy Gillspie's Manteca, Stan Kenton's The Peanut Vendor, Tito Puente's Mambo Beat, Mongo Santamaria's Afro-Blue, Cal Tjader's Soul Sauce, and more recent artists, such as David Sanchez, Paquito D'Rivera, Arturo Sandoval, and Chucho Valdés' Con Poco Coco. The extensive liner notes are bilingual. The album is 69 minutes in duration. The 15 selections are outstanding. It begins with Tanga and the excitement of that stunning composition continues through the series of tracks. For a historical survey, this album is the truly essential anthology for jazz and Latin jazz collectors.
