L-O-V-E is a collection of sultry Spanish songs that caused a good amount of dancing at my house. It's impossible to listen to it without smiling and tapping my feet to the infectious rhythm. Some songs are slow and melancholic, other more lively. I loved the background vocals and the piano accompaniment. The remarkably trumpet, sax and trombone create an atmosphere of buena vida, and a feeling of relaxation and joy.
Here is a complete list of the L-O-V-E tracks:
2. Quizás, quizás, quizás (Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps)
3. Tiernamente (Tenderly)
4. Ay Cosita Linda
5. Suas Maos
6. A Su Mirar Me Acostumbre (I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face)
7. Piel Canela
8. Aquellos Ojos Verdes (Green Eyes)
10. Yo Vendo Unos Ojos Negros
11. Hojas Muertas (Les Feuille Mortes)
12. No Tengo Lagrimas (Nao Tenho Lagrimas)
