Nat King Cole Cole Espanol/A Mis Amigos DMM 180g Import 2LP
180 Gram Double LP! Direct Metal Mastering!
Jazz Legend Sings In Spanish!
This 2LP set from Vinyl Passion collects remastered versions of the two Nat
King Cole albums Cole Espanol (1958) and A Mis Amigos (1959) which
both showcase the jazz legend singing in Spanish and were originally intended
towards his growing international fanbase. Since Cole didn't actually speak the
language he learned the song lyrics phonetically.
For Cole Espanol, nine of the eleven tracks were recorded by conductor
Armando Romeu, Jr. in Havana, Cuba with Cole adding his vocals later in
Hollywood while the remaining two cuts "Cachito" and "Noche de Ronda," were
recorded in Hollywood with Hispanic musicians and Dave Cavanaugh. The album
climbed to the Top 20 in the U.S. and was a hit internationally.
The success of Cole Espanol then led to the recording and release of A Mis
Amigos the following year. This time around Cole recorded the album's twelve
songs with Brazilian musicians in Rio de Janeiro on his 1959 South American
tour. Due to the added experience of Cole Espanol and the wonderful reception he
received from the fans internationally, Cole produced yet another warmly
received and highly respected offering.
