Xavier Cugat • Caricatures

by Tony Wilds
The most irresistible aspect of Cugi's Caricatures may be the jacket's sketches to accompany each title. They are by Cugat, of course. The theme is supposed to be jazz and rock tunes, but popular standards in various Latin and Brazilian styles is more accurate. "Night Train" could be jazz or rock, but here it is a cha-cha, one of the highlights. The tunes leading off each side, "Fly Me to the Moon" and "Desafinado," indicate the peak popularity of bossa nova. Culminating his Mercury years, Cugat Caricatures' smooth consistency indicates the sophisticated, tried-and-true sound that would distinquish his subsequent Decca period.
