His illustrious recording career of over thirty albums as a leader and collaborations with Fania and legends Ray Barretto and Willie Colón, are matched by his remarkable strides in the political arena of his native Panama.

As a successful actor, Blades has also been featured in over thirty movies, including Spike Lee’s jazz inspired drama, Mo’ Better Blues, and the 2012 thriller Safe House, with Denzel Washington.
