While Tito Rodriguez played mambo on a par with the others, it was his voice that set him apart. Whether it's mambo, Latin twist, or sentimental ballads, Rodriguez rarely strayed far from authentic or progressive Latin. Indeed, no other performer epitomizes the Latin showman as well as the top vocal stylist, versatile musician, sophisticated arranger-composer, handsome bandleader, leader of the New York Latin scene. Tito Rodriguez' music is quintessential. Given the popularity of all three rhythms listed in the title, it's no surprise that Tito would think of them as his "loves" – especially since they'd all helped spur on new energy in Latin music! Originally released in 1957.
