Yuri Buenaventura`s derde CD uit 2003 heet "Vagabundo" en is een veelzijdig album geworden.
It is far more than just another salsero. It`s part of his music -- just listen to the warm "Neruda," a salute to the great Chilean poet -- but he`s more a pan-Latin roots stylist who uses a lot of thought and intellect along with the passion in his music. There`s a strong streak of social consciousness running through his work, not only in the obvious, like "Terror," but also in "Donde Estarás?" a wonderful piece of Cuban son. In some ways he`s reminiscent of Rubén Blades -- they seem to have similar spirits and equal ambition for Latin music. To achieve that, he has some fabulously talented musicians working with him. But more than anything, it`s the breadth of his vision that`s astonishing. He can move easily from the Afro-Cuban "Afrotango" to the title cut with its lazy Parisian feel (it comes in both French and Spanish), and sound completely convincing on "Coqui" and "Paloma Taina," a pair of gorgeous odes to Puerto Rico. With his expressive, malleable voice and his easy command of so much Latin music, Buenaventura is a remarkable singer and writer.
