A powerful and energetic version of the Prado "classic" by the versatile Werner Muller and his Orchestra. Brass section in the best of shapes - definitely a necessity in order to be able to play these notes at such a high tempo.
The impeccable use of music extends to the work’s other sections. A trio that becomes a quintet of bobbing clowns dances to a bit of Harry James. Another quintet of wigged-out circus denizens shimmy and shake to the strange, stratospheric vocals of Yma Sumac. One hot number, set to “Jalousie” played by Werner Muller and his Orchestra, features a couple dancing what amounts to a tango interruptus.
