In "Prez" two sides of the fabulous "King of the Mambo" are presented. One features
Prado interpreting Latin rhythms as only he and his musical aggregation can. The other
side of Prado is not as familiarly known but is sure to be equally appreciated, for it
reveals that Perez Prado is a jazz performer of the first order.

Anyone who thought there was only one facet to the Prado band should definitely spin
this album on the nearest hi-fi turntable. For here in "Prez" is a shining example of the
organization's exceptional versatility and musicianship.

Lovers of the Latin beat will be overjoyed with the end results of this album, while jazz
fans will be more than satisfied. Perez Prado and his orchestra have turned in a lot of
great albums for RCA Victor but none finer than "Prez."
