Paco de Lucia – Antologia (Mercury, 1995)
This is a magnificent profile of Paco de Lucia, one of the greatest guitarists of all time.
The Spanish composer and guitarist was particularly skilled in flamenco, but crossed over into a range of other styles such as classical, jazz and world music.
His vast archive of music combined technical magic, raw energy, tender emotion and superb melody. From bulerias and tanguillos to tangos and rhumbas, this compilation showcases Paco de Lucia’s virtuosity.
If you can’t make it to Andalucia in southern Spain, this album will give you a flavor! We particularly recommend the tracks ‘Danza Ritual Del Fuego,’ ‘Cepa Andaluza’ and ‘Rumba Improvisada.’
