"If you are a fan of spanish music, this is one for your collection. Mr. Cole does a great job singing the more traditional songs (Las Mananitas), as well as the popular songs (Magic is the Moonlight). My family and freinds have thoroughly enjoyed this one!"
A wonderful summer evening experience

"I bought this after seeing In the Mood for Love but before the soundtrack had come out. I'm so glad I took a chance on it. Not only does it have Cole's songs from that film, but many others, some just as good. His voice is as silky smooth and romantic as ever, but listening to him in Spanish (for someone like me who doesn't know the language) is a wonderful way to focus on the pure musicality of Nat King Cole and his orchestra. The sound quality on this 1993 is just fine, as lush as it ought to be. It's worth having just to hear a different side of Nat King Cole aside from the obvious hits you usually hear."
Ay, Cosita Linda!

"This is just wonderful. Although Nat King Cole's accent in Spanish leaves something to be desired, he is such a wonderful singer that I can overlook this. His rendition of "Ay cosita linda" makes me want to get up and dance! A beautiful and varied selection of Mexican, Cuban, and Puerto Rican music. The backup vocals are good -- and in unaccented Spanish. Every song is beautiful."

"This is great stuff. He does mangle the Spanish language, but even that seems appropriate considering when the recordings were made. The engineers did a great job capturing the acoustic instruments and the vocals. Reminds me of the high fidelity recordings by Esquivel that you can get on CD today.Perfect background for an outdoor summer drinks party."
