Three bathroom stalls were out of order. Charis had rips in them. Still waiting for a makeover for this place.

Worst service I've had there. I was ignored for a very long time. Quite unfortunate.

It was a wonderful experience and I felt very lucky to see both shows that night. It was a perfect size venue and Freddy Cole seemed very pleased with the audience's "love" for him. If you don't already know about Issac Delgado - check him out -...continued

Excellent event. Delgado is a mesmirizing vocalist. All is Spanish, which I was good with. As my friend said, "first time I have been to a concert where I didn't understand a word and was totally into it." Appearing with Delgado was Freddy Cole....continued

Description

Sony Masterworks recently releases L-O-V-E_ by Cuban superstar Issac Delgado. On _L-O-V-E, Delgado recreates 12 sultry and sexy Spanish recordings originally sung by crooner Nat King Cole. He does so with the help of a number of outstanding musicians including a special contribution by Nat King Cole’s brother, Freddy Cole. This is the first time that Freddy Cole has participated in a tribute album for his brother.

Nat King Cole’s relationship with the Spanish language is interesting and relatively unknown. Between 1958 and 1962, Nat King Cole released his three albums in Spanish. Recorded in Cuba, Brazil and Mexico, they included hits “Perfidia," “Quizas, quizas, quizas," “Ay cosita linda," “Piel canela," “Aquellos ojos verdes" and “Yo vendo unos ojos negros." His Spanish albums created a new awareness for Latin-American music globally. Among Nat King Cole’s fans was Cuban vocalist Issac Delgado who grew up listening to Cole’s Spanish recordings which he felt combined Cuban bolero music with the sounds of classic American romantic ballads.
