Jardín Azul: Las Canciones Favoritas

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Tucson, Arizona–born Linda Ronstadt proved her versatility with Canciones de Mi Padre, a collection of Mexican songs dedicated to her father, which won a Grammy back in 1987. Two more Grammy-winning collections of Spanish-language music followed, and this set collects the best of all three discs, plus a track each from 1973's Hasten Down the Wind and 1993's Winter Light. It's a perfect time to celebrate Ronstadt's artistry. Not only is her taste impeccable, but her voice is more than up to the task. Unlike Gloria Estefan, whose tribute to her Cuban roots was slick, sugar-coated tropical music, Ronstadt's renditions of Mexican and Tejano songs are the real deal. Her ...

Tucson, Arizona–born Linda Ronstadt proved her versatility with Canciones de Mi Padre, a collection of Mexican songs dedicated to her father, which won a Grammy back in 1987. Two more Grammy-winning collections of Spanish-language music followed, and this set collects the best of all three discs, plus a track each from 1973's Hasten Down the Wind and 1993's Winter Light. It's a perfect time to celebrate Ronstadt's artistry. Not only is her taste impeccable, but her voice is more than up to the task. Unlike Gloria Estefan, whose tribute to her Cuban roots was slick, sugar-coated tropical music, Ronstadt's renditions of Mexican and Tejano songs are the real deal. Her rancheras -- "Mi Ranchito," "Por un Amor," and others -- are perfect examples of the form's over-the-top emoting, and Ronstadt sobs, her voice breaking in all the right places. Other tracks concentrate on the lush boleros of Mexican cinema, typified by "Perfidia," "Piel Canela," and "Verdad Amarga," and Ronstadt has no problem finding the weary, sensual core of these melancholic standards. All of the material is easily within her reach, from the huapango "Rogaciano el Huapanguero," rich with keening falsetto, to the southwestern flavors of "Lo Siento Mi Vida" (featured on Hasten) with its pedal steel guitar and bilingual lyrics. Those who haven't followed Ronstadt's Latin career are in for a treat.
All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Mi Jardin Azul: Las Canciones Favoritas is a collection culled from Linda Ronstadt's three Spanish-language recordings: Canciones de Mi Padre 1988, Mas Canciones 1990, and Frenesi 1992. In addition, it features the self-penned cut "Lo Siento Mi Vida" from the 1976 album Hasten Down the Wind. While the compilation contains no new tracks, its issue makes sense because Ronstadt won Grammys for each of her Spanish-language outings. Its remastered sound, personal notes, and photographs that annotate the selections make for a fine travelogue through this aspect of the singer's long career. It is worth mentioning, too, for those who never encountered Ronstadt's forays into Spanish-language and Latin music, that these titles are all among the most interesting and compelling in her catalog. There is no hint of revisionism or novelty in their presentation or articulation. They are works of popular art that reflect not only her heritage, but a kind of intimate history of this music in North America -- while many of the songs here are well known in their communities of origin, this was their first hearing for most Anglos who brought them, via each individual album's popularity, into the canon of mainstream music and paved the way for artists like Los Lobos to make albums such as La Pistola y el Corazon one of their finest outings ever. Ronstadt proved such projects could work and made major-label corporate interests open to them. Musically, this set is gorgeous: full of life and passion, and brimming with stunning moments in both the vocal performances and arrangements. Wonderful.
