Notes & Reviews:

The lush, idyllic landscape of Latin America has long inspired art from outsiders. This release gives the floor over to the less often heard works of insiders: the composers and performers of Latin America. Spanning over 50 years of composition, the project seeks to reveal Latin America's great cultural diversity to novices and devotees alike.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
What a blast! Brilliant, in addition to re-releases priced so low a mouse could afford them, is apparently issuing some fine original recordings. This is one of them, and it's a sonic and musical showcase. If you want something bright, sexy, beyond colorful, and downright wild, you won't do better than this. And the sound - oh, my, my: this one would stay in my collection simply as a demonstration disc. The bass drum is so vivid you'll be dreaming about it. It's really one of the best engineered recordings I've heard. This was great to play while working. The playing is so idiomatic and energetic. Brief notes in Spanish and English.

MusicWeb International, April 2013
This is as good as a Latin American hits collection gets. The Venezuela Symphony Orchestra is on superb form, at least as good and as spirited as the more famous Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra; their American director, Theodore Kuchar, leads energetic performances that really get into the music's ethnic spirit...It's all a boatload of fun. Played with swagger and excitement, conducted totally idiomatically, recorded well, and sold for dirt cheap.
