I was absolutly blown away by Aterciopelados beautiful rendition of one of my favirote Jose Alfredo Jimenez tunes, "Que Te Vaya Bonito". It brings a whole other dimension to the song. Fantastic.
Another knockout is "Serenata a la luna" done to perfection by Julieta Venegas. It makes me itch even more to hear her new album. Other notables include El Tri, Saul Hernandez, Ana Belen and King Chango. This album I believe is important, as it reintroduces the young generations to Jose Alfredo, who was the greatest composer of all time in my book. I hope that this will prompt young ones to seek out their grandparents records, and acquiant themselves with the one who helped shape Latin music as we know it today, perhaps more than anyone else.

It is unfortunate that so little information is provided about this super collection of songs . First of all the disc features many of the heavies and up and comers of RocnEspanol that give a modern twist to the magical lyrics of Jose Alfredo Jimenez. Featured artists include Saul Hernandez, Elefante, Aterciopelados, Julieta Venegas, El Tri, Rabanes, Jumbo, Joaquin Sabina, Miguel Mateos, Moenia and Mana just to name a few as there are seven more interpreters I didn't mention. None of the songs really sound like the originals by Jose Alfredo, also known as El Rey. Purists that are into Jose Alfredo might think this is wrong but believe me , from one Jose Alfredo fan to another, these songs rock and have much of the same emotion of the originals. Beginning with the first song, appropriately entitled "El Rey' by Moderatto, the tribute and homge begins to one of Mexico's greatest composers of popular ranchera music. Moderatto starts the disc with a Clash("Should I stay or Should I go") like beat and sound that suddenly changes rhythm and goes into an uptempo frenzied beat as the singer changes persona and does his best deep voiced(ahhh, thank you, thank you very much like) Elvis impersonation to set the tempo for El Rey songs like you've never heard them before. All of the songs rock, some have a gentle edge but all carry the impact and emotion of El Rey's lyrics, which unfortuantely, are not included. El Rey's music was often about love and the inevitable heartbreak and he seems to have had more than his share of both. A beautiful interpretaion of "Que Te Vaya Bonito" by Colombia's Aterciopelados features Andrea cutting straight to the heart.Read more ›

I was actually desapointed that the US version of this album did not include all 20 songs that originally has in the Mexican and Latin American version.
To me the most impressive version of a Jose Alfredo Jimenezsong has been made by Enrique Bunbury. He has performed this song since 1997 and has closed most of his concerts with it. It has now become a clasic of his shows. The live version included originally in the mexican version of this album is the best of all 20 songs.
Other than that, this album is great. All the musicians did a great job bringing back to life the songs of this great writer.
