Ibrahim Ferrer – Buena Vista Social Club Presents
This is one of my favourite offshoot discs from the whole Buena Vista Social Club phenomenon.
Everything about this disc is perfect. It has soul, it has style, it swings, and it’s damn playful. There are trumpets (I love the trumpets!), and the vocals are out of this world gorgeous. This record feels old-school, made by those steeped in tradition.
Total class. What a splendid disc. Sit down, son, the grown-ups are making music. Listen and learn!
