Although the first Alegre All-Stars album, recorded in 1961, became an instant favorite of Latin musicians and the so-called 'super-hip' crew, the general public did not take to it so rapidly. It was released at the time when the Latin record business was geared toward the 'le lo lai' market -guitar music of trios and quartets- and the Latin dance music of New York appealed to a limited crowd (i.e. DJ's, musicologists, and the Palladium crowd). Eventually it made its mark. The sound incorporated the best qualities of both Latin and Jazz, creating improvised yet melodically interesting music. Without restrictions and concern for public opinion, it was easier for them to swing and be creative. Over the years the Alegre All-Stars albums have become true Latin classics, and this album is a compilation of their very best.
