On 2012`s Eba Say Aja, two great salsa soneros—the Panamanian Ruben Blades and the Puerto Rican Cheo Feliciano—cover each other’s songs and team up to sing two duets. With lots of vibes (vibraphone).
The singers share vocals on “Lo Bueno Ya Viene” and “Si Te Dicen.”
On the first track, the pair engages in an exciting back-and-forth; Feliciano is soulful and earthy while Blades soars.
“Si Te Dicen” finds Feliciano’s ultra-romantic lead nicely contrasting with the passages where the two sing together.
And check out Feliciano’s spirited rendering of the unreleased Blades song “Inodoro Perez.”
