This program will highlight Spanish songs with jazz interpretations. What was the first song that you heard in another language that captured you? My uncle, who was a jazz enthusiast, introduced me to Nat King Cole at an early age. When I first heard Nat King Cole sing “Perfidia,” I was captured by the music and felt that I understood the words even though they were in Spanish. The song was written in the 1930s by Alberto Dominguez Borras, a Mexican, and became a classic. My appreciation for this collaboration of Spanish and jazz continued from there.
