Paco de Lucia is a must, what other quality flamenco artists and albums would you recommend? Segovia seems to be an all around good choice, but I've been having trouble finding his flamenco cd on the net. I'd like to hear some of his spanish stuff before actually buying it. In any case, recommend away.

Flamenco is basically that energetic spanish guitar sounding stuff, very precussive and bouncy. Insansely fast picking at times, Cabron by the Chili Peppers is the closest I can think of flamenco interpreted through pop culture at the moment. There was some in the Desperado trailers, I believe.

I'm sure you've heard of it, you just might not be familiar with the name.

De Lucia solo concerts are amazing. I still haven't been able to build up my hand endurance to pick as fast as that and still ring bass notes.

Sorry about the double post - Also, just curious if anyone would know of a brazilian jazz-guitar artist with wild improvisational skills. A lot of them seem to be very laid back but i'm looking for something more heated and intense, i guess.

carlos barbosa-lima. hes pretty neat, more classical though. Mclaughlin definately rocks, Paco de Lucia is insane. yeah, flamenco rocks. Apparently Matt Bellamy from muse only had a few years of Flamenco lessons on guitar. you can definately hear that style in quite a few of those songs. de Lucia is the man though.

You have to grow your nails strong and large for a good picking...
With long dark black hair, dark skin, the nails and dark costume, you'll look like a perfect gypsy :biggrin:

Bump. Someone recently asked about Flamenco in the Classical thread...so here it is...a flamenco-centric thread. Also, here are the songs I uploaded in the aforementioned thread...

Strunz & Farah - "Amritsar"

Bozzio/Levin/Stevens - "Duende"
(Bozzio/Levin/Stevens doesn't usually play this kind of music, but I love this particular song of theirs. It's seems like a pretty standard flamenco vamp...but they do wonders with it...thanks to Bozzio's drumming.

Camaron De La Isla, Miguel De La Bastide, Paco De Lucia, Potito, Tomatito, Moraito.

Flamenco is not john maglaughlin, you have to really dig into it. As incredible as he still is though, among others, just because they play "spanish sounding stuff" does not necessarily make it flamenco. Flamenco is a way of life almost, theres so much to it, alot of people mistake "rumbas" or "rumba guys" for bieng flamenco. Try to go educate yourself on it. a great example of this is ottmar libert, he is a "rumba guy".
If you can get your hands on the movie "flamenco", you may get more of an idea.
to start you off, flamenco has different "palos", different forms. Popular ones bieng tangos, bulerias, alegrias, rumba, sevillanas, fandangos de huelva, there are so many different variations of these though.
different forms of flamenco are "cante" and la baila. the solo guitar or stuff with bands is a new form that they call "nuevo flamenco", where there are more instruments and stuff with no baila or cante..
theres so much more to it, try to dig around for it though, or ask me.

Life in the city
Everyone's busy
Packin' portfolios to kill competition
Hey boss hey boss
I'm capable of making your life easier
But I'm drunk on promotions.
Can I get you some coffee?
Can I make you some copies?
Have you seen my resume?
I'm a regular go-getter.
I'll take the slow life
Like a cowboy strayin' 'cross the open plains
Wandering without fear of a monday.

how the hell has nobody mentioned the Gipsy Kings yet?

haha probably the most popular flamenco band in the US for quite some time.
(Edit: They're self-titled album is probably one of my favorite albums of all time just because it was something I heard all the time growing up.)
