Ibrahim Ferrer - Mi SuenoNonesuch Records
The sad part is that Ibrahim died three weeks before the final recording session for this but thankfully his final wish and dream, that his beloved bolero album be completed has now been realised. From the very first note Ibrahim's voice grips you emotionally, music that is not beyond making you shed a tear as it gently dances with you. There's a superb small group behind the great man which includes Roberto Fonesca and Cachaito Lopez. Wonderful.
