The treatment of his voice has a hollow, retro quality that is curious and yet charming. The band, comprised mostly of his recent Seis del Solar cohorts, Ralph Irizarry, Robby Ameen, Oscar Hernandez, Eddy Montalvo, and others, sounds warm and classic. Perhaps it is the tonality of the record, or maybe 1991 was a great year for writing, but nearly every selection features coros and hooks that are more top-of-the-lungs shoutable than anywhere else in the artist's huge catalog.
Redirected from Caminando (Rubén Blades album)). Caminando is a 1991 album by Rubén Blades, his first album after moving from Elektra to Sony International. The album was a critical and commercial success with Latin and salsa audiences, marking a temporary return to Blades earlier coro-heavy style which marked the collaborations with Willie Colón of a decade earlier on Fania.
