This CD has been chosen for Great Flamenco Guitars of Today Library for two reasons: first, because its musical value is unquestionable and second, because this recording like no other reflects the versatility of the artistic trajectory of this guitarist and composer.
This work demonstrates a wide palette of styles and influences that Tomatito made his own: from a dazzling and very jazzy jam session with the great George Benson to a fiesta por bulerías in a wine cellar en Jerez de la Frontera in a pure Gypsy style, from an Argentinian bolero to a profoundly ancestral solea, from tangos flamencos so “Tomatito” to a Turkish folk song with a symphony orchestra.
