Entre dos Mentes 

Just revisiting Pohren and seeing what I could glean from the photographs in the book, looking at Google maps. Betanzos (Calle) is unrecognisably still there, and Siete Puertas is a hotel, evidently.

My wife and I went to look at Triana last year when we passed through Seville. I was looking at it today on Google maps to see where we'd been. I suddenly realised that it's between two waterways, the Rio Guadalquivir and the Canal de Alfonso XIII. Entre dos Aguas....

Was Paco writing about Triana? Makes sense to me. Is this well known?

I had a look on the general internet and this forum but it doesn't seem to be mentioned. One for Sn. Zern?

RE: Entre dos Mentes (in reply to El Burdo

I always took it as a double meaning.

1. Algeciras very close there to Gibralter which literally lies between Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea, and
2. the idea of improvising over a form or chart in a "jazz" manner such that the two "oceans" of musical worlds are fusing.

The is a famous CD named "Dos Mundos Cantan: Abrazo flamenco a Hispano-America." Made for the celebration de Sevilla 1992.

I am inclined to think of the Estrecho where el Mediterráneo meets el Atlántico.

But who knows? Does it matter?

That makes perfect sense....If you go to the port side of Algejiras you are looking over the mediterrenean and a couple of KM west at another beach you looking over the Atlantic

Yeah, I thought No. 1 was the real reason. I am pretty sure I heard Paco say this in an interview 'that he was born entre dos aguas' but I would have to look up the video.

RE: Entre dos Mentes (in reply to Shroomy726

OK already! That does make more sense. I still like mine though, though obviously it doesn't matter, obviously.

I was wondering around one evening near the docks at Algeciras - something from the perspective of central London I never imagined I would say whilst alive - and came upon the Cameron de la Isla Peña. I take it there must be a Paco de Lucia one in addition to his out of town statue?
