que onda? 

Hey,

I've been listening to Flamenco for about 5 years now, but only seriously started to analyze it fairly recently as I am trying to learn different palos on the guitar. I've played guitar since I was child, but flamenco has been a special sort of challenge for me. Neither jazz or Classical demands of the right hand the way that flamenco does. As well, the rhythms...brilliant in my opinion. Even something that seems simple when listening, like a Tango or a Rumba, can be difficult to really feel...nevermind a buleria or solea.

There have been a number of albums I have really been enjoying.

The Album Homenaje Flamenco A Miguel Hernández by Enrique Morente is one of favorites. The Tiento and Solea especially; so much emotion. I also really enjoy "Lorca" by him...As a musician I really respected his effort here.

Vicente Amigo; The more I learn about Flamenco the more I respect him. De Mi Corazon al Aire, Viviencias Imaginadas, and Un Momento en el Sonido especially. I saw him live in seattle and he was excellent. I may be one of the few who enjoyed Paseo de Gracia more than Cuidad de Las Ideas, granted the later has a great Alegrias and Solea. I really enjoyed the Tango and the two bulerias in paseo de gracia. Azules y Corinto has a very interesting interpretation of the Buleria in my opinion, a palo which I think he does very well. I havent heard anyone who uses the Buleria the way he does (El Mandaito, Campo de la Verdad, Rocamandor).

His work on "Canta" with el pele, and "Al Amanacer" with Jose Merce is great. Both albums in my opinion go beyond the palos and their falsetas into an area of composition.

The first four albums that Cameron did with Paco I really enjoy, especially Cada Vez que Nos Miramos.

Tauromaiga....Amazing. I'm still trying to understand this one. often im not even sure which palo he is playing in.

Orate by Diego del Morao. Really nice to hear someone interpret flamenco in a novel way without resorting to smooth jazz sounding phrasing. The opening Buleria and the following Solea por Buleria are great.

There are many others but I am tired of writing....

If you guys have any other recommendations please let me know.

In case you didn't know it before, Vicente Amigo was a student of Manolo Sanlucar, so a big part of what you hear and like about his stuff is part of that influence. For example, Maestranza on Tauromagia, V. Amigo is playing on that track.

As far as "jazzy-smooth jazz" etc, sure it's easy to generalize but if you get into the specifics of it, those adjectives are usually not the best ones for describing certain players.

Cheers
