A really great little album from The Swingle Singers – one that features them working with tracks from Spanish composers, and bringing a little bit more fire into their grooves! The approach is similar to that on their Bach and Mozart sets – scatting vocal jazz versions of classical tunes, served up mostly accapella, with some bass and drum in the background. The charm of the tunes lies in their construction, though – and the group really make the most of the setting – putting in some great vocal touches where you might normally expect to hear Spanish guitar! Titles include "Sevilla", "Spanish Romance", "Tango In A Minor", "Andaluza", "Granada", and "Concerto De Aranjuez". (White label promo. Cover has some wear, a spot of tape with a rip on the spine, a promo stamp, a bit of pen, and WGN Library letters on the back. Labels have a sticker and a bit of pen.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
