Harlequin's exhaustively complete series on Brazilian-American dance bandleader Xavier Cugat has turned up countless rare recordings either waxed for broadcast purposes or recorded while being broadcast live over the radio. This installment compiles material dating from the years 1934-1937. It documents Cugat's efforts to assimilate himself and his orchestra into the North American dance band market while retaining a certain amount of authentic Latin American repertoire. This makes for an assortment of equatorial delights and lightweight U.S. pop tunes that sometimes sound more like George Hall or Richard Himber rather than Xavier Cugat, who was always at his best when purveying exotic instrumental mood music. Featured vocalists on this compilation are Carmen Castillo and Pedro Berrios. Highlights include the refreshing "Canto Karabali," the aromatic "Para Vigo Me Voy" and a magical piano interlude by Nilo Menendez that unfortunately only lasts a minute-and-a-half. This archival grab bag will at least temporarily satisfy any cravings you might have for vintage Cugat nougats.
