Paco de Lucia's tour 

Hi,

I recently visited Paco's website to look for updates, and I came across an article that appears to speak in more detail about Paco's upcoming tour. What alarmed me was the mention of Chick Corea's name. As the article is in spanish, I cannot determine if Paco will be playing with Chick or otherwise... I was hoping maybe someone who is interested and who does read spanish could pop over there and have a look. The article is under the link "NEWS" or "ACTUALIDAD" and then with the title "EL SEMANAL".

For me, this is very worrisome, as initially it was thought that the tour would present Paco de Lucia's brilliance stripped down, not accompanied by his sextet or any such non-orthodox flamenco instruments. Of course, Paco is cool in any form, but Chick Corea?! Aaayyy... Aaayyy... Aaayyy

cheers,

- Con

Didn't he do this with Chick in Light and Shade maybe? Anyway, I hate it. PDL just blows away people, like the pompous John McCaughlin in impro jams. I was watching one of these on tv recently and saw John bending the neck of his Ovation from behind the head to get a sort of vibrato. Peerleeease, sheesh!

Amen, Simon!

Can't stand that bull@#$%!

Yeah, actually, in the new Paco DVD, there is a clip of him with Chick Corea.

Anyway, can anyone confirm that Chick will be accompanying Paco on the tour? I was planning on going to a show or two just to see Paco cause it might be his last waltz, and who knows what his new material will be like. Could be good, eh? You never know. But if Chick is with him, I will give it second thoughts. Chick is a stellar player, but piano in flamenco just overwhelms the guitar and deflates the flamenco's essence, ya dig? Throw me your opinions on this one. Anyone else?

regards,

The meaning of the sentence is that he is going to do a tour with Chick, the whole tour. I guess that for the American market is better to go with him than alone.

RE: Paco de Lucia's tour (in reply to Conrad

bugger!! i posted before i had finished!! i was going to go on to say that i saw paco and the sextet in liverpool in 1996, and from what i've seen on film and in video's, that group's repertoire doesn't seem to have changed much from when i saw them.
i would go though, because as you say this could be his swansong. but if the material they play is from his last album ''luzia'' then good luck to you! i still can't get into that record.
there, i think i've finished.

Hi Folks!:
I'm going to attend to the Miami Concert. The thing that I know is that the tour won't be with septet and rather is going to play the material from his new CD that will be relaeased within a month. There is no confirmation about doing or doing not something with Chick, still i suspense

Any way you can, read the last interview to Paco in this site

Saludos to everyone!!

RE: Paco de Lucia's tour (in reply to Jerzy

Hi,

There is a flamenco site here in Canada that is reporting a new lineup (and without Chick Corea). Check it out. The webmaster from www.flamenco.ca had e-mailed me with rumours that Tomatito would be joining Paco, but the site now reads that Paco is playing with a selection of musicians of whom I have certainly not heard. Perhaps they are a new young crop of musicians. It tends to follow with the www.deflamenco.com report that read that Paco would assemble a brand new group. Anyway, maybe Chick will be playing with Paco elsewhere, although, I agree with Jotego that it makes most sense for Chick to play in North America with Paco, although that is not my preference. I guess we will have to wait until we step in to the concert halls to find out for sure. By the way, the article Jerzy mentions is an interesting one, especially for the members of the list I imagine.

Umm, if you want a great spot for some after-concert drinkies, try "Mangos" on Ocean Drive, one of my top 10 bars ;-)
