Dont be put off by words like virtuoso, technical prowess or even jazz.
If you have even the most remotely open mind when it comes to music you will find the playing and the pieces on this CD breathtaking in their accessibility, humour, warmth, virtuosity (yes), beauty and musicality.
Lots of it has a flamenco feel and its the often hypnotic rythmn of that genre that ensured this would never have become (as far as non jazz fans are concerned) a bit of a jazz-geek love-in.
Its one of THOSE albums, where you put it on the best stereo, crank up the speakers, turn off the lights, close your eyes and lose yourself, over and over again, hearing new things every time.
The audience appreciation adds to the pleasure of listening to what was obviously an incredible night, listen to this and you will, like me, wish you'd been there.
