Reviews:

“Three Loves was quite progressive for RCA in 1957 (or 1956, if it was recorded then), and Tito's voice and leadership are in top form. The more engaging material is on Side One, from the jazz-inflected "Asi...Asi" to the Prado-esque "Esto es Mambo." As with his other Victor material, Three Loves provides valuable background and stands up to his better-known work on Tico and United Artists” AllMusic Review by Tony Wilds

A native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Tito Rodriguez came to New York City in 1939 to sing with his brother's band. He learned to play a variety of instruments before succeeding as a vocalist with Enric Madriguera, Xavier Cugat, Noro Morales, and José Curbelo. In 1947 he started his first band with René Hernández, Cachao Lopez, and Victor Paz.

Several of the great Latin-American singers went on to form their own aggregations, but Rodriguez was the most successful. One reason is the music, which has the hip drive of Tito Puente (whom he copied during the Palladium battles of the 'two Titos') and the Palmieri brothers. Eddie Palmieri and company perform on some of his best albums. In fact, he and Puente, 'the two Titos' headlining at New York City's famous Palladium, were rivals for the title of Mambo King until Perez Prado took it.

While Tito Rodriguez played mambo on a par with the others, it was his voice that set him apart. Whether it's mambo, Latin twist, or sentimental ballads, Rodriguez rarely strayed far from authentic or progressive Latin. Indeed, no other performer epitomizes the Latin showman as well as he: top vocal stylist, versatile musician, sophisticated arranger-composer, handsome bandleader, leader of the New York Latin scene. Tito Rodriguez' music is quintessential.

Given the popularity of all three rhythms listed in the title, it's no surprise that Tito would think of them as his 'loves' – especially since they'd all helped spur on new energy in Latin music! But over and above the rhythms, the album itself is one of Tito's greatest from the 50s – spare, lean, and with a style that's both lively and jazzy – never dipping into some of the too-heavy modes that Tito succumbed to in later years. Tracks are all short, with lots of horn work on top of the percussion.

In April 1999, Tito Rodríguez was inducted in the International Latin Music Hall of Fame
