José Jiménez’ "Algo que decir" is the first work published by the founder of the sophisticated and mysterious "Cañorroto" style of guitar. This musically and technically complex style is unique to the gypsy neighborhood Caño Roto in Madrid, where the highest concentration of flamenco guitarists in the world can be found.
"Algo que decir" is an album that has given me great satisfaction because of my friendship with "El Viejo", but especially because of this work´s originality, creativity and tastefulness. "El Viejin", a true gentleman, doesn´t only play well for singing and dancing, which is fundamental; he is also a virtuoso and a great composer, as this album shows". PACO DE LUCIA
This album was awarded the "Discovery of the Year 1.999" prize by the Spanish Press Association.
