Triple threats are almost common in music these days, but what can one call Luis
Arcaraz, whose talent has as many facets as a Tiffany diamond? If there's such a
word as quadruple threat, that's the one for Luis. For his gifts encompass such
diverse musical fields as conducting, singing, and composition, and (for good
measure) Luis has organized a remarkably versatile orchestra that is at home with
the musical styles that prevail both North and South of the border.

Born in Mexico City of musical parents, Luis spent his childhood debating the
relative attractions of music, bullfighting and engineering. Music won out much to
our good fortune (and to the good fortune of the bulls, no doubt, for Luis is
formidable in anything he attempts). Hs has won his oles nevertheless and Arcaraz
is the proud owner of Mexico's Gold Record Award for his compositions.

And here Senor Arcaraz comes forth with a brilliant collection of tunes ranging from
Latin favorites such as Noro Morales' "Perfume de Amor" to such American standards
as Fats Walter's fiippant "Ain't Misbehavin'." The uniting force in these dozen tunes is
the sparkling Latin air that Arcaraz brings to everything he does. The band is big and
colorful with some half dozen trumpets and a full complement of rhythm instruments.
And here as in his previous RCA Victor album DANCE BREAK (LPM-1612) every
arrangement is geared to danceability and just easy listening.
