Contributing their fair share to the unusual sounds are such outstanding
musicians as Ronny Lang, reeds; Dick Nash, baritone horn; Vince DeRosa,
French horn; Bob Bain and Laurindo Almeida (both courtesy of Capitol Records, Inc.), guitars and mandolins; Bobby Hammack, Hammond organ; Jimmy Rowles, tinpanola (Brazilian piano); and Emo Neufeld, concertmaster of the large string section. The four percussionists are Shelly Manne (courtesy of Contemporary Records, Inc.), Frank Flynn, Larry Bunker and Milt Holland.
All in all, the album goes a long way toward proving that Latin music can and should be suave, polished and sophisticated. If you still don't believe it, ask Mr. Lucky.
