Variations of "Oye Como Va"

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by XavierG, Aug 27, 2004.

  1. This tune has been interpreted in various ways and I'd like to know if anyone can point me toward arrangements other than as performed by those below-listed:

    "El Rey" Tito Puente
    Carlos Santana
    Michel Camilo
    Bob Mintzer Big Band

    I'm playing the tune at an upcoming gig and I'd like to listen to as many versions as
    I can before coming up with my own arrangement.

    ...there's always Brent "Mr. Data" Spinner's version from the Out To Sea flick.
    Spinner is playing a lounge singing Cruise Director.

    Have you heard his album? he does the lounge singer/crooner thing pretty well. It's not that amazing, but it was better than I expected. It's got a good title too.
