Mel Torme was known for his elastic voice, sense of swing and effortless good taste. Arranger Billy May (he's dressed up like Speedy Gonzalez on the LP cover) was famous for his boisterous, good-humored, hard-driving charts. The two make for a perfect match on a theme album built around the Latin world. "Frenesi" and "The Rhumba Jumps," about American jazzers in the Caribbean, are standouts.
