Xavier Cugat - Cugat In Spain

According to the liner notes from my last Cugat post he was originally from Barcelona, but the liner notes off this album state he was from the small town of Girona (misspelled Gerona on the album cover). Wherever he comes from, his cha cha beats have provided (and continue to provide) entertainment for thousands of people.

Xavier brings his distinctive Latin stylings to the music of his native Spain in this outing. The paso dobles, gypsy airs and Spanish classical tunes are all overlayed with that distinctive Cugie cha cha feel.
