"My Dream" is the title of the Buena Vista Social Club crooner's posthumously released final album, and it refers to Ferrer's abiding wish to record a set of boleros, a style for which his high tenor was long deemed unsuitable. Packed with swooning romantic material from Cuba's star-struck pre-revolutionary years, it's a wish come true for the the singer, who passed away in August of 2005, and for fans. While vocal brawn may have been fashionable for bolero singers, Ferrer proves that his vocal dexterity is of far greater worth. Of special note is his duet with Omara Portuondo on the warhorse "Quizás Quizás Quizás," given a delicate reading underscored by the advanced years and fragile condition of the principals. Roberto Fonseca contributes searching piano and a producer's credit on this fine recording, and Buena Vista compatriots Cachaito López (on bass), Guajiro Mirabal (trumpet), and the late Ruben Gonzalez (piano) lend a hand. It does Ferrer's memory more than proud.
