“What makes the Orquesta Aragon so fine is the sophistication of its arrangements. A familiar song like ”Guantanamera,” for instance, was subjected to all manner of chromatic twists and instrumental niceties, yet such cleverness never got in the way of the original’s fervent intensity.” – New York Times
