Review

Not Now's 2014 compilation is a generous double-disc sampler of the South American dance. These 40 songs were recorded in the late '50s (and 1960) and feature Hector Maure, Armando Pontier, Horacio Salgán, and Manuel Pizarro, among others. Think of it not as a definitive history but rather an enjoyable (and affordable) portrait of a style and you won't be disappointed. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
