LET`S DANCE THE MAMBI is een long-play CD van bandleider Rene Bloch met werk uit begin jaren 60.
René Bloch was one one of the most celebrated Latin bandleaders in the early 60s in the Los Angeles scene and with an excellent background for this type of music. An alumnus of the Perez Prado band, he toured the world playing Latin music while deciding how he wanted his own band to sound. Yet this group has a fresh, exciting sound all its own.
