Xavier Cugat ‎• Cugie a Go-Go



Review by Cub Koda
This collection compiles 16 tracks from several of Xavier Cugat's albums recorded for Decca Records in the mid-1960s. This marks a time in Cugat's career when he was largely chasing after trends (Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass and Brasil '66) and recasting current pop tunes in an effort to regain entry into the pop mainstream. The track highlights include Sonny and Cher's "Bang Bang," "Theme From Zorba the Greek," "Moon Over Naples," "Charade" and "La Playa (Aruba-La Plage)" from the album Bang Bang; "Judith," "Thunderball," "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah," and "Adios" from Dance Party; "Jungle Rhumba," "Compadre Pedro Juan," "The Jewish Wedding Song," and "Music to Watch Girls By" from Today; and "Chim, Chim, Cher-ee" and "Goldfinger" from Feeling Good. Most of the tracks are making their CD debut with the release of this collection. These four albums were dismal sellers upon release, but in light of the current interest in Latin music, they now almost seem like guides to the changing face of the genre. No matter how seemingly incongruous the material at hand, all feature that distinctive Cugat touch: the touch of a true master.

Crítica de Cub Koda
Esta colección compila 16 temas de varios de los álbumes de Xavier Cugat grabados para Decca Records a mediados de los años sesenta. Esto marca un momento en la carrera de Cugat cuando él persiguió en gran medida las tendencias (Tijuana Brass de Herb Alpert y Brasil '66) y la refiguración de las melodías pop actuales en un esfuerzo por recuperar la entrada en la corriente principal del pop. Entre los temas destacados se encuentran "Bang Bang", Sonny y Cher, "Theme From Zorba the Greek", "Moon Over Naples", "Charade" y "La Playa" del álbum Bang Bang; "Judith", "Thunderball", "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" y "Adios" de Dance Party; "Jungle Rhumba", "Compadre Pedro Juan", "The Jewish Wedding Song" y "Music to Watch Girls By" de hoy; y "Chim, Chim, Cher-ee" y "Goldfinger" de Feeling Good. La mayoría de las pistas están haciendo su debut en CD con el lanzamiento de esta colección. Estos cuatro álbumes eran vendedores lúgubres en el lanzamiento, pero a la luz del interés actual en música latina, ahora parecen casi como guías a la cara cambiante del género. No importa cuán aparentemente incongruente el material a mano, todas las características que el toque distintivo Cugat: el toque de un verdadero maestro.
