O’s Notes: Perez is the mambo king from the 1950s. His sound defined the beats that shook dance halls across America, those that wanted a taste of mambo. He came from Cuba as a keyboardist but moved to leading dance bands. His arrangements defined the scene. This collection features 22 of his hits. While the recording is narrow and monophonic, you can still gage the energy and intensity his possessed.
