The Allmusic review by Matt Collar states: "Although artists such as vibist Cal Tjader and Dizzy Gillespie had been producing Afro-Cuban and Brazilian inflected jazz for a few years, the cross-pollination didn't really catch on until the '60s. Latinsville!_sentence_3

Consequently, Latinsville, while in no way as influential as say, Getz/Gilberto, is nonetheless a forgotten gem". Latinsville!_sentence_4

On All About Jazz Chris M. Slawecki observed "As a soloist, Feldman whisks through his ending to “Flying Down to Rio,” then his mid-song feature in “Cuban Pete” swings very deeply in Bags’ (Milt Jackson’s) bag. Latinsville!_sentence_5

He also dances brilliantly against the amazingly timed percussion melody of “Cuban Love Song.” But the musicianship of the other musicians—the percussionists and horn/brass soloists in particular, but also the bass and piano players—play as large a part in the excellence of this music as Feldman does".
