re: 1999

A couple of years after the release of Buena Vista Social Club album, a long time Cuban musician Ibrahim Ferrer followed up with his first recording debut album when most musicians at his age would either consider their music careers to its near end.
If it weren't for Ry Cooder who had traveled to Cuba in 1996, to bring Ferrer and some of the other folks to form the Buena Vista Social Club-- the world most likely would never had heard of this music.

At age 63-plus, Ferrer was long overdue for a debut album, and as a result the disc communicates a feel of easy satisfaction.
