Charged with reinterpreting Cuban folkloric music, Cuba's Pablo Milanes was both a controversial figure (for his support of Castro) and one of the country's most romantic songwriters. He has one of the softest and most expressive voices in the Caribbean and a vibrato to die for. This collection captures Milanes at his best, before the regrettable smooth jazz outings.
