Friends, this is a splendid cover versions album !!!

"I have several of Nina Pastori's albums and was curious to see what this latest release was about. Her fifth album ("no hay quinto malo") seemed to me a couple of notches below the fourth one so I was reluctant to get this one, especially when I found out it was a cover versions cd. I said to myself "ouch, there she goes too....lack of inspiration, go for the cover of classics". I have heard so many top artists doing that with poor results that I was highly skeptical for this one...

This happens to be a remarkable album. Nina interprets ten selected masterpieces of Spanish songs (by that meaning not only from Spain, but also from other Spanish speaking countries-artists), and the result is unexpectedly brilliant. You will find her own version of Mediterraneo from Joan Manuel Serrat, an older tune, but also fairly recent songs such as "Cuando nadie me ve" from wonder boy Alejandro Sanz. These two artists are from Spain, but you will also hear a lively version of Dominican Juan Luis Guerra's "Burbujas de amor". Or a cover from a song from Mana (Mejico). The strength of this cd is that it is innovative (I don't remember anybody else doing this type of covers before), and that it is not the typical cover cd: either carbon copy of the original tracks (what's the point then?) or completely tasteless and dull, and we also get a load of that every now and then. In fact, this is a great tribute to artist who create and express themselves in Spanish. Sure, you get the "nuevo Flamenco" touch on each track, but the performance is on target, as well as the production, making it a wonderful 38 minutes journey.

My personal favourites ? "lo eres todo", "Mediterraneo" and "Pajaros de barro". But the whole album is in fact a great one and you should also get it. Thanks Nina for risking yourself in these marvelous woods of great songs and giving them a new life ! Un abrazo."

"I found Niña Pastori by chance. She is wonderful, her interpretations of these song are extraordinary. I love all, but especially ¨Lo Eres Todo¨
Bravo Niña, Ole!"
