i picked this up a few years ago, this being the first flamenco type cd i've own. i am no professor on flemenco music, but till this day i have not found anything that measures up; and i always keep an ear open to anything of such status.
amigo is a matador on the fretboard, playing in the ring of his feeling. he has unique lascivious style incorporating elements of grace, speed, strength, stillness and melliflous melody that leave one breathless wondering the source of its creativity. many flamenco guitarists get carried away displaying their dexterity and virtuoso on the strings of the guitar with furious forceful flurries of notes - which is fine, playing with flame is much part of the spanish way (flame/flamenco) and musicians must display skill - but loose sight of qualities such as melody, the light delicate playing touch and pockets of silence - complementing speed and power. vincent utilises this balance with grace. he lets emotion be his guide; its the backdrop behind the spontaneous motion of the music; combined with most supernal guitar skills, this is rare indeed, this IS potent.
sadly this work seems to be a one off, unequalled in his other cd's; maybe due to its inherent complexity of this work; i can't blame him; but then i hope he has not been influences by the media mincing machines that tend to slice up original talant that made someone someone in the first place and force them to produce stuff that apeals to the masses. amigo stop! take a step backwards. i pray i hear this genius of yours exercised at full stretch again someday. go go amigo.
