Ruben Blades' concept MIXTURA exposes the hope that people will accept music, no matter what the genre is, provided it is done with quality and professionalism. All albums today limit themselves to a specific musical direction, to fill a specific market niche. It is an economic imperative, not an artistic one. SWING! Features jazz songs complemented with a couple of salsa tunes whose arrangements are very reminiscent of the swing era itself.
