5.0 out of 5 stars Soft, suave and Spanish Nat King Cole January 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Unlike most of the other reviewers of this disc who came by way of exposure to "In The Mood For Love" I can actually remember listening to these songs as a child. I was thrilled to see this compilation of Spanish songs featuring the underappreciated song stylings of Nat King Cole. He had a voice for the ages.This disc is based on two recordings on Capital that he did in Spanish. The superb recording and superior "Cole Espanol" was the first of two efforts and included some of the best offerings on the disc including "Quizas, Quizas,Quizas" where Cole croons at his best and in pretty good phrasing for a non-Spanish speaker, "Las Mananitas"(Mexican birthday song) and the tribute to the revolutionary, women soldiers of 1911 war torn Mexico, entitled "Adelita,"in which he is accompanied by mariachis for an authentic interpretation, "Acercate Mas" where he is accompanied by the Rivero Quartet, the unforgetable composition by Agustin Lara, "Noche de Ronda" where the marimabas chime in softly with the background chorus adding to the fine textures and 50's cha-cha- cha dance numbers like "Cachito" and "El Bodeguero."The original recordings mentioned were recorded in Havana, Cuba under one of the leading conductors in Cuba, Armando Romeau Jr. The result is a polished professional eclectic mix of Spanish songs reflecting the diversity of Latinos with songs from Mexico and South America. The orchestration and background vocals work wonderfully with the smooth voice of Nat King Cole. I would highly recommend his disc to those that like Nat King Cole and want to experience another view of this multi-facteted and talented musician or those that like nostalgia or romantic songs in Spanish.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful summer evening experience July 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really terrific! January 28, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ay, Cosita Linda! March 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the Mood for Nat October 3, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

A clarification, for those who think: 'I can't ABIDE bad accents!' What people are commenting on in these reviews may be described better as a less subtle or legato phrasing than his English style, tending to over-separate words and overemphasize consonants. In listening to these songs, I don't hear any words that are 'mispronounced' by most people's standards; there simply is an overall impression of a vaguely 'foreign' sound.

It does mar the performance slightly for those of us who treasure Nat King Cole for his smooth and seemingly effortless delivery. But don't let anyone's comments turn you away without listening to the samples for yourself. You may find yourself carried away after all.
