Absolutely First Rate

"In the film "Buena Vista Social Club" the late Ibrahim Ferrer said that one of the biggest influences on his singing was Nat King Cole. Now that's high praise from one great crooner to another.

Nat King Cole's particular phrasing and smoky smooth baritone sounds great in any language, and this album is immensely satisfying from start to finish. Cole's interpretation of the classic song "Perfidia" is darn near perfect; there is a brief crack in his voice as he sings this song that lets you know that he just gets it. And I mean REALLY gets it. This is a passionate song to begin with, but Cole elevates it to another level.

In addition to displaying first rate musicianship, this collection is also great fun. "Cachito" sets a festive and toe stepping tone right off the bat, and Cole handles the traditional Cumbias on this album with his trademark intelligence, sophistication, and grace. Just more proof of why Cole was one of the greatest singers of the twentieth century."

"When my dad played this Latin version of Cole, my 3 year old sister began to laugh. Everyone else began to dance. The first time I was ever allowed to get drunk! Even the insurance types let thier guard down! Infectuious."
