Not really and exotica album, pure Latin big band in the vein of Desi Arnaz.  But the cover has been used by many exotica music compilations.  The sound quality is stereo, but not the greatest quality.  however, the original LP wasn't the best quality either, so all in all, well worth the price.  The performances are great though.
