Zucchero: La Sesion Cubana

Biography

In the Reggiano dialect “choka” means “make a noise” and “beck” means “beak”.

“It was an expression my father used when I was a child. Whenever I asked him if there was anything to eat, rather than tell me there was nothing, he would say “A ghe di chocabeck” – “There’s chocabeck”.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consider the alternate version of this too.... May 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This particular "Greatest Hits" has mostly English lyrics, and a different song selection from the Polydor Italian version. I have both versions. This one is a lovely compilation of some of his best songs sung in English. I have been listening to Zucchero for a couple of years now and still have not tired of his sound. If you have never heard him, this is a perfect CD to start out with, since it showcases his songs being sung in English and therefore does not put a language barrier (in my case) between the music and the words. But, I also love all of his Italian versions and buy both when ever available. As a 'starter' CD this one is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Italian Joe Cocker calmed down April 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was fortunate enough to discover Zucchero while living in Italy. His music brings the usual Italian cheer to blues music. He has a distinctive voice that I would suppose you'd either love or hate. I like it a lot. This album is a must have in either English or Italian.

5.0 out of 5 stars You never go wrong with Zucchero September 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can easily recommend this fine Italian musician/singer/composer! Zucchero is that incredible musical discovery still waiting to happen in America. He loves the blues, but he can rock with the best of them and play funky or Latin too. He sings both in Italian and English, even mixing them at times. The emotion of his singing is so moving that the first time I heard it I was hooked. The more I listen to his music, the more I want to listen to it, he is totally addicting. This is a fine collection of SOME of his best, and a good sampler to try him out. Trust me, buy ANYTHING by this musician, you will never go wrong.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zucchero's Greatest Hits January 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
We bought this CD AFTER we had gotten a copy of his Zucchero and Friends CD. This CD has many of the same tracks as the "friends" CD - they are good, but the duets are actually better. We are surprized that Zucchero is not better known in the US as his music is great and we love his style. Anybody who likes something a little different would appreciate Zucchero's music, even the foreign language tracks. If you like this CD, you will like the duets CD even better. I would buy another Zucchero CD and have shared ours with friends who also liked it well enough to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music To My Ears March 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I heard a song by Zucchero a year ago and thought it was good then I heard My Love and I fell in love. Zucchero is so diverse that he can make you swoon over My love then get you up dancing with the next song. If you like REAL music with melodic sounds, something you can humm and keep with you then you have to have a Zucchero experience. You'll fall in love too...guranteed.
He weaves together Italian and English so well I don't even know that I don't understand what he's saying.
Zucchero is a must have.

I got turned on to Zucchero with Feels Like a Woman on the French Kiss soundtrack. He's an Italian secret who needs more U.S. exposure--tell your friends.
