Album Review

On his first outing in five years, and the first of the new century, flamenco guitarist Paco De Lucia has given us one of the most sublime recordings in his long career. This collection of "Good Little Things" (Cositas Buenas) is a step away from Nuevo flamenco, and back to the grain of the source music itself. It is a record full of handclapped rhythms, organic spare percussion, and burning, passionate songwriting and singing. The various singers — including Paco himself — wail, chant, moan, and ecstatically intone his new songs to the sheer rough-hewn grace of his playing. Most tracks are done in the canonical style of guitar, and voice with handclap accompaniment, but there are two — the smoking, burning black soul of "El Dengue" and "Que Venga el Alba," on which he is accompanied by another guitarist. On the album's final cut, "Cassa Bernardo," a rumba, Jerry Gonzalez adds his mariachi trumpet to the proceedings. Cositas Buenas is an album that careens across the history of flamenco. While rooted in antiquity, it nonetheless points the way to a new music, one that extrapolates rhythm and harmony and adds syncopation, texture, depth, and multi-layered harmonics to the original framework. It is transcendentally beautiful if overwhelming in its passion and the sheer joy of performance. Indeed, Cositas Buenas sets a new standard for modern flamenco music and acts as the true bridge between the ancient and the future. No one but a master who cares nothing for his laurels could have articulated such a work.

Customer Reviews

Amazing!

If you are a fan of the older Al DiMeola, John Mclaughlin and Paco DeLicia work on "The Guitar Trio", "Passion, Grace and Fire", and "Friday Night in San Francisco" then you will love this music as well. It is Paco at his best. The music is beautiful and peaceful, yet intricate and accomplished. I wish the Trio would get back together for another of these albums sometime, but this satisfies just fine.

Really worth hearing!!!

I know there's a lot of Moorish influence in Spain at least in some of their architecture, but that influence must also be in the flamenco music. Some of the tracks on this CD that have the passionate wailing vocals sound almost like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The hand clappng blended with the drums is so smooth and interesting. Even though I'm really captivated by Paco De Lucia music, I wasn't sure about this CD at first but now I keep playing it over and over. I just love it!

His collaborations included ten albums with flamenco vocalist El Camaron de la Isla...
