Review

Review Text Boasting 43 tracks on three CDs, This Is Ballroom Dancing is a lengthy miscellany of big-band and easy listening tracks. The first disc would make the listener suppose that the ballroom in question must be located somewhere in South America, since the rhythms are Latin, with plenty of mambos, cha chas, rhumbas, and tangos played by Ace Morales, Juan Toradez, Francisco Garcia, Xavier Cugat, and Geraldo & His Gaucho Tango Orchestra. The second disc generally features more conventional swing music, as played by the likes of Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw, although some more Latin swing also sneaks in. The third disc is devoted entirely to the easy listening sounds of Jack Hansen, and he too provides a few Latin numbers. This is not a thorough or scholarly collection of big-band music, but rather a seemingly thrown-together batch of tracks, yet much of it, as the title suggests, is good for dancing. ~ William Ruhlmann
