Distinctions The Unusual Suspects
A couple years after battling breast cancer and releasing an album inspired by the experience, Vida Tóxica (2007), Luz Casal unveiled La Pasión, an album of boleros that pays tribute to Latin American songwriters of the mid-20th century. From the 1940s up until the 1970s, a lot of Spanish artists fled the right-wing authoritarian regime of Francisco Franco and crossed the Atlantic Ocean to Latin America. While not all of the songs featured on La Pasión are the work of Spanish refugees, they were all written during a period when Spaniards were coming in droves to countries like Argentina and Mexico, and these immigrants, many of them artists, brought their culture with them to the New World. Casal pays tribute to this era with La Pasión, an album of boleros written by René Touzet ("Con Mil Desengaños"), Maria Grever ("Alma Mia"), Eduardo Magallanes ("Historia de un Amor"), and others, many of whom are obscure. La Pasión was produced by Renaud Letang, a French hitmaker known for his work with Manu Chao, Alain Souchon, and Feist, among others, and the orchestral arrangements were conducted by Eumir Deodato, an industry stalwart who gives the album an air of majesty. Complementing the orchestral arrangements of Deodato are veteran percussionists Alex Acuña and Luis Conte, who supply the Latin rhythms that underscore these songs of romantic passion. The 11 songs of La Pasión are performed in a uniform style, and as all of the inclusions are classics to some degree, there isn't a dull moment on this album, which runs for less than 40 minutes. While it's difficult to single out particular highlights, given the consistent excellence of the album, there are a few songs that stand out, namely "Alma Mia," "Historia de un Amor," and "A Dónde Va Nuestro Amor." As for Casal herself, she sounds as divine as ever and fully at ease with these boleros. All things considered, La Pasión is such an impressive album release that one wishes Casal would release another in this style, a sequel perhaps. © Jason Birchmeier /TiVo

Un Ramo de Rosas is the fourth compilation album by the world-famous diva of Spanish song Luz Casal, covering her illustrious three-decade career. Casal's eclectic artistic personality and immaculate taste are well served by these 15 selections, including Casal's signature songs, as many as four tracks from 2009's La Pasión, and three new entries: Violeta Parra's timeless "Gracias a la Vida," Dalida's "18 Años" (with the French lounge outfit Nouvelle Vague), and "Un Ramo de Rosas," written by Casal with Juan Cerro and Carolina Cortés. The Special Edition adds a second disc with another 15 tracks, effectively turning Un Ramo de Rosas into a double-disc compilation. © Mariano Prunes /TiVo

For her 11th studio album, Vida Toxica, Luz Casal and her longtime producer, Paco Trinidad, pieced together a powerhouse band, including veterans Pino Palladino, Robbie McIntosh, and Paul "Wix" Wickens, joined by engineer Darren Allison behind the board. Vida Toxica showcases warmth and a new optimism in Luz's voice, being the first release after her battle with breast cancer.
