favorite Morente albums? 

The more I learn about Flamenco the more I appreciate his albums. It seems like most contemporary cante is trying to sound like camaron (no disrespect), so going back to his work is always refreshing.

As a musician, I can really appreciate the way he experimented with Flamenco in ways few others have.

Anyways, I'm interested in hearing from members of the forum what their favorite morente albums are and why?

I don't have half the Morente collection that i should have, but I do have a very soft spot in mi corazon for the album he made with Sabicas. That must have been one of the last albums Sabicas made. There's nothing there wildly inovative or experimental, on the contrary, it's a very trad album from two of the greatest of all time. It's a double album, so great to put on and soak up the duende for a good long while like it's nice a long warm bath.

Indeed. As much as I enjoy much of his experimentation the album of his that I currently hold most dear is Homenaje Flamenco A Miguel Hernández. The soul and expression is outstanding. The tiento and solea melt me every time.

Except Manolo Sanlucar 'Tauromagia', I can't think of anyone who had a more creative way to produce recorded flamenco, without simply trying to polish it? Whether white noise with Sonic Youth, singing over old guitar recordings on 'El Pequeño Reloj', covering Leonard Cohen with a rock guitar etc..
Even in the 70s he was trying things another way:


He also wrote new cante melodies. He took risks that no one seems to take anymore.

Just for the excuse to post here he is with 'just' a guitar too.
