Product Description

Product Description

The Cuban singer Ibrahim Ferrer emerged as the most popular star of the Buena Vista Social Club phenomenon. Ibrahim who is pictured on the cover of that classic album, was the audience favourite from the Wim Wenders' film and he went on to record solo albums produced by Ry Cooder and tour the world to a rapturous reception. Now World Circuit is proud to announce the release of his final album `Mi Sueño' (My Dream) the project he dreamed of realising all his life - an album devoted to the most meltingly romantic of all Cuban styles - the bolero. Two years ago Ferrer began recording the bolero album he had long dreamed of. `Mi Sueño' is an intimate all-star session arranged by Roberto Fonseca, the remarkable young pianist with whom he had developed a deep musical understanding. Recorded in Havana with a wonderful small group that included Manuel Galbán on guitar and Cachaíto López on bass, the album is a very personal take on the bolero style - deeply traditional and at the same time startlingly modern. Sadly three weeks before the final recording for the album was due to take place in August 2005, Ibrahim died at the age of seventy-eight. On his deathbed, he dictated a letter asking that his dream album be finished. Fortunately he had left high-quality demos of the songs with which he wished to make up the rest of the album. In the confusion surrounding his death these tapes were temporarily lost, causing a delay in the album's completion. When the tapes were found, they not only completed the album Ibrahim had always dreamed about, but also are a fitting final testament that finds the singer still in heartfelt voice and singing the songs he loved best. Personnel: Ibrahim Ferrer - (vocals), Roberto Fonseca - (piano), Rubén González - (piano) (3), Omara Portuondo - (vocals) (11), Orlando "Cachaíto" López - (bass), Manuel Galbán - (guitar), Ramses Rodríguez - (drums), Amadito Valdés - (timbales), Emilio del Monte - (bongos, maracas) and others

Review

(4 stars) Heart-stopping, simply heart-stopping. -- The Sunday Times, (Clive Davis), March 25, 2007

(4 stars) Sensitively backed on piano, bass, guitar and drums, and
poignantly joined by fellow veteran Omara Portuondo. -- The Independent On Sunday, (Michael Church), April 1, 2007

(4 stars) The Cuban Nat King Cole even outdoes Nat to record the
definitive version of the old standard, 'Perfidia'.
-- Uncut, (John Lewis), April 2007

(4 stars) There's a delicate intensity about this album which
makes it enchanting listening. -- Evening Standard, (Simon Broughton), March 23, 2007

(5 stars) A wonderful swansong of a mythic life by a great singer... essential for his many fans. -- Songlines, (Peter Culshaw), May 2007

Ferrer sings with the innate grace and intimacy of the truly blessed.
-- Q, (Peter Kane), April 2007

I really love the Buena Vista Social Club CD and though I would give this artist a try.

This CD is much more laid back and more centred around softer love-song themes; good if you want to relax and listen to an amazing Latin American voice!

If I feel in a bit more of an upbeat mood, then I would stick on BVSC instead, but this is still a great CD.

I heard Ibrahim Ferrer first in France. The owner of the house I was staying in is a fan. This Cuban find definitely drew me in, so I was glad to find it on amazon.co.uk. It's calming, soulful jazz sung by a probably ageing professional, but no magic is lost in the deliverance. Cuban music at its best. I favour this cd as it is unobtrusive as background, but no one misses it just the same and I'm always asked 'who is that singing?' and 'where did you find that?' I regard it as a gem.
