I watched his vids years ago. I like that he is one of the few players that sings at the same time he playS.

That's Richard Black AKA El Quixote- He's from California, lives in Spain now. He likes action low. He's deep into Moron style if you did not pick up that. If you like him spend some time listening to Dieguito or now known as Diego de Moron. But yes Richard plays nice.

He plays all the great Diego del Gastor falsetas, but some of the falsetas people think are Diego's are actually Dieguito taking his uncles stuff and working it it over.

But Quixote I think is a lot like Dieguito in his muscular direct approach. He certainly knows this music.





Not a good recording, but the phrasing is great:

Great poster on his wall. Anyone know where you can pick up one of those?

You can get the whole book for 18 Euro- The poster was a promotional for the show in 2012- not sure if you can still get it, but you can look on the website.

The book is a 'must have' item.

Thanks Stephen. Dieguito is classic Moron.
Most musicians are taught to have economy of movement, the least effort or tension possible but sometimes I at least forget that you also have to make every note count, which is why I like Quijote. He's putting in way more effort than strictly necessary, Dieguito too.

He has a bunch of accompaniment videos too.

Thanks for posting this, Andy. He clearly was a student of Diego del Gastor, whose large picture is in the background. I too studied with Diego in 1970-1971. (Us old guys.)

I actually think that Diego had great technique. But he was restrained and sparing with it, relying a lot on ligados and the right thumb. He played the music he loved (and invented) with just the right amount of technique for it. He could do lightning picado runs when he wanted to, crystal clear arpeggios, and the best rasgueados in the world. He presented himself much the same way, always thoughtful about other people, always neatly dressed in a suit, un hombre formal.

Ah yes, I remember seeing that book when I visited Leñador last year. It is a great picture book. Will have to get a copy one of these days.

Clicking on the link leads to a page for ordering the book. Trying to order gets the message, "titulo sin existencia." Amazon has only one used copy for sale, $215.

Any other hints?

RE: A reminder not to have b!tch-a$$... (in reply to Andy Culpepper

is it even possible to have bitch ass technique in flamenco? :O btw I like this guy's bold style, I kinda feel that flamenco often times needs to sound harsh and raspy because that's basically what it's expressing.

RE: A reminder not to have b!tch-a$$... (in reply to Andy Culpepper

I've made inquiries about posters and copies of The Flamenco Project, I'll report as soon as I hear responses.

Meanwhile- on the subject of Diego and his guitar playing family- There was a twin brother to Diego, he was a troubled person and struggled with chemical dependency issues. However he was a guitarist also and I have heard, received wisdom from good authority, that 'El Mellizo', Diego's twins nick name was a very earthy guitarist. Someone else I will not say who, speculated that in their youths that Mellizo may have been the better player. I have no idea that this is true or untrue, but it is a tantalizing side story.


There are probably no recordings of him, but there is something I heard of and may have actually had a long time ago on cassette tape. Chris Carnes made a field recording of Mellizo playing.

I sought out Mellizo's music by asking several of the older Americans that spent time in Moron in the 60's if they knew any. David Serva showed me maybe for or five of his falsetas, which I still play. And Evan Harrar, a person who's been an self appointed documentor of all things Diego related to me that almost all the Sevillanas in his book of falsetas are attributed Mellizo. I also asked Juan Del Gastor to show me a little, and it's a bit sensitive, but he understood I was respectful and gave me a little.

So I thought I would throw out that there was another guitarist in the family and although he had issues, should not be forgotten. If any of you, Ethan?, have any information about the Twin I am interested in hearing your story.

Stephen--

I don't have any information about a twin, but I have another sad story about Diego. I can't remember who I heard it from, but I heard it from someone in Moron in 1970-1971. Maybe from Ruth Knighton, who is married to Juan's brother Pepe.

Diego was once engaged to be married, but his fiancee died before the wedding. (That's it; short story.)

The definitive update on the Flamenco Project Book- Currently out of print, the first printing sold out and there are no plans as of yet to enter a second printing. The posters are available on a limited basis, the poster we talked about up-thread. There are a limited number of them left. Contact me via PM if you would like the information to order one, but only if you are serious. I don't want to put the guy out to answer any flaky emails. There are also high quality digital prints available from at least one of the photographers who's work was included - So pm me for contact information.

Sorry about the book, but there are some posters left.

First of all his technique is fantastic and he's the best foreign cantaor I've ever heard:



Obvious he's spent much time in Andalucia
