Always in My Heart: Trio Los Panchos- The Music of Ernesto Lecuona (19??)

I've made it clear my passion for the compositions of Ernesto Lecuona, so it should be no surprise that I love this record. Trio Los Panchos weave an achingly gorgeous, classically romantic, sun-dappled Latin dream with shimmering guitars and floating harmonies. All compositions are vocal versions of Lecuona pieces. This is an endlessly pleasant record to have-- highly recommended. All the songs are wonderful, just grand.

You may have heard one of the tracks, "Canto Karabali", on the first Jungle Shadows comp, if that helps.

And on a related note, does anyone know of a good collection of older Lecuona compositions, preferably recorded by him?
