Ibrahim Ferrer's solo debut, produced in Havana by Ry Cooder, features an extraordinary stylistic range of music, from nostalgic 1950's big band, to stunning ballads, to the rich, country-style son that made the first Beuna Vista Social Club album a hit around the world, and won a new audience for traditional Cuban music. The Ferrer sessions reunited him with legendary Buena Vista colleagues Ruben Gonzalez and vocalist Omara Portuondo, as well as the outstanding original rhythm section, plus Ry Cooder as both player and album producer. Joining the cast are the female vocal quartet Gema 4, former Los Zefiros electric guitarist Manuel Galban, and original Coasters saxohponist Gil Bernard. Certified Gold by the RIAA. (8/01)
