To Beny Moré With Love by Cuban-American singer Jon Secada and The Charlie Sepúlveda Big Band won the Best Traditional Tropical Album award at the 18th Latin Grammy Awards. The arrangements are by Ray Santos, who worked with Beny Moré in the 1950s.
Beny Moré was a legendary Cuban singer and bandleader who influenced Latin music in the United States and abroad.
The album combines Secada’s vocals with Beny Moré’s original vocals (who passed away in 1963) and was criticized by some members of the Moré family.
