Review:
A lively collection of bilingual songs and tales, warmed with a Latin-flavored pop beat and Maria Del Rey's clear, musical vocals and storyteller's verve. Musical accompaniment by a variety of artists , including Del Rey on guitar and cello, is expressive -- pianist Andy Roberts' contribution to "The Legend of Sr. Frog" is as integral to the telling of this tale about a frog with lofty spirations as Del Rey's narrative. Children's voices enhance the festive, informal spirit on many songs, including the title track about a beloved Caribbean street vendor "in the land of sugar cane, palm trees and limes."
