    The music on Mexico -- From Vera Cruz to Acapulco is as stereotypical as it comes, but nonetheless there's pretty good coverage of the various styles of Mexican music (complete with an ultra-light primer on the history of Mexican music in the liner notes). Some basic mariachi music comes and goes every few songs, with punches of horn groups doing everything from spaghetti Western themes to bullfight music -- even a stray marimba band now and then. Some exceptional dance numbers pop up here and there as well, including the great "Zapateado Jarocho" and an intriguing take on the old "Cielito Lindo," both from the Grupo Chicontepec. The music all around is quite good, with all groups turning in quality performances. For a good range (as well as good performances) this album makes a fine selection for the emerging Mexican music fan. ~ Adam Greenberg
