Fred Wasser talks with Cuban-born salsa singer Issac Delgado about his new album, L-O-V-E, a tribute to the late Nat King Cole. In the late 1950s and early '60s, Nat King Cole recorded three albums of Latin standards, in Spanish: Cole Español, A Mis Amigos, and More Cole Español. Issac Delgado grew up listening to these albums, and has now fulfilled his dream of recording some of the same songs.
