VERY GOOD set of 13 familiar tunes sung by talented Cuban-American singer with excellent arrangements.

When I picked up this CD, I reviewed the list of songs and decided to give it a try. If you expect it to sound like her usual music, you will be disappointed. But I truly loved this one - old classics are timeless. Nice to see her using her voice for something in another genre. I wasn't too sure how it would sound, but was very pleased with the outcome - she performed this very well. :o)

The Music CD was okay – but not one of my favorites not worth the long library wait.

First of all, the library should not classify this as Rock Music (tagged as one). Okay, why would Ms. Estefan try a standard album with many of the songs that have been sung by contemporary artists like her be included in this album? The answer - I don't know. Except for a Portuguese staple and a Luis Miguel popularized bolero ( i hope it is. btw, in Spanish it is El Dia que Me Quieras), the rest behoves me that these songs shouldn't be recorded for another 50 yrs unless someone comes out with a new arrangement and possibly only a couple of them in an album! And I don;t think she has the quality to do such an album. She should do more salsa where she is really confdent.
