Eba Say Ajá by Ruben Blades
Released: May 2012
Label: Ruben Blades Productions & Ariel Rivas Music
What a concept: two Grammy-winning salsa legend team up and take turns singing classics of the genre, including each others’. Unsurprisingly, Eba Say Ajá is fantastic, a warm, friendly conversation between two old friends (we swear Feliciano is even chuckling at times!). With arrangements that emphasize classic salsa’s sunniness and Latin jazz connections (so many pitter-pattering vibraphones!), cuts like the crackle-popping stroll “Inodoro Pérez” and the dramatic “Nina” showcase just how much much these two rich-voiced legends (at 62 and 77) still rule the game.
