On Around The World Señor Coconut has again conjured “Electrolatino” songs from international hits. Once more he’s recorded with his big band then taken the recordings apart in his own studio in Santiago de Chile, reassembled them, surgically processed each track, and injected that special Coconut magic. Long serving Coconut vocal collaborator Argenis Brito steps up to the mic for the majority of songs along with the crooner Louie Austen (the Viennese Frank Sinatra!) adding his touch plus Stephan Remmler, the legendary head of 80’s electro-popsters Trio stepping forth to top it all off.
