After being inspired by his Latin American tour, the great Nat King Cole recorded three collections of songs in Spanish between 1958 and 1962, all of which were best-sellers at the time of their release. Half a century after they were taped, these albums continue to captivate listeners across all generations. This CD compiles the very best of these sides. Only an instrumental track, three tunes sung in Portuguese and an odd reading of “Guadalajara” with a loud Mariachi chorus have been excluded.
