The Rat Pack Sounds of yesteryear, now en español
Eddie Marrero, actor and recording artist, sings American standards in Spanish in his latest album: “Con Amor: Eddie Marrero.” Eddie is bringing Latin heat to Rat-Pack era standard hits made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Nat King Cole such as “All of Me,” “Besame Mucho,” “My Way, I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” and many others.
“I grew up in New York listening to Latin music but also to great American singers and classic songs,” says Eddie. “I always wanted to perform those songs in Spanish and add a touch of Latin rhythm to their classic beauty. I’m very excited with the results and hope the fans love them as much as I do.”
“Con Amor: Eddie Marrero” contains the tracks “Todo de Mi” (All of Me); “Besame Mucho”; “Te Tengo Bajo Mi Piel” (I’ve Got Your Under My Skin); “Mi Amor” (Based on the title That’s All); “Completamente al Final” (All The Way); “Donde O Cuando Fue” (Where Or When); “Bella Maria De Mi Alma” (Beautiful Maria of My Soul); “Todo En Amor Es Justo” (All In Love Is Fair) and “En Mi Viejo San Juan” (In My Old San Juan). The sound takes us back to the days of Frank Sinatra but also adds a bit of salsa to the mix.
