Reviews

Praise for the previous edition: "Roberts cares passionately about Latin music and he is able to describe what he hears in it clearly enough to enable the non-Latin listener to hear it too."--Robert Palmer, New York Times Book Review "Roberts treats his subject with singular affection and respect only a true fan and student can give."--Nuestro Magazine "Demonstratess a non-purist, open ear that is rare and welcome...a solid, up-to-date and balanced examination."--Kirkus Reviews "A provocative study, secure in its data...Roberts virtually has this subject cornered."--Black Perspectives in Music Praise for the previous edition: "Roberts cares passionately about Latin music and he is able to describe what he hears in it clearly enough to enable the non-Latin listener to hear it, too."--Robert Palmer, The New York Times Book Review "Roberts treats his subject with singular affection and respect only a true fan and student can give...makes the unclear clear, tracing the history of 'Americanized Latin' music on records, the stage, and in the movies as well as an informative look at the genuine Latin styles that evoked the fad fires."--Carlos de Leon, Nuestro Magazine "Demonstrates a non-purist, open ear that is rare and welcome...a solid, up-to-date and balanced examination."--Kirkus Reviews "A provocative study, secure in its data...Roberts virtually has this subject cornered."--Dr. Dominique-Rene de Lerma, Black Perspectives in Music "That rarity, a genuine 'first'; the only book ever to have covered the crucial contribution that Latin rhythms made in forming our uniquely American idiom."--Pete Terrace, Cash Box "Since 1990, I have been making use of The Latin Tinge as the required text in my course on Latin American music...I am pleased at the prospect of increasing numbers of students benefiting from Mr. Roberts' insight and clear explanations."--David Vayo, Illinois Wesleyan University
