I felt I should do a quick review to correct an impression created by a number of reviewers of this CD. Somebody has (mistakenly) referred to this as a fusion of flamenco and Irish traditional music and a number of later reviewers have repeated the same assertion. In the absence of my Scottish pals defending themselves I will point out that of the 4 major traditional players backing the legendary Amigo, 3 are Scots and the 4th (Mike McGoldrick) plays with the Scottish group Capercaillie. So where this Irish label came from I'm not quite sure ?

Back to the album itself. I totally concur with the overall 5 star rating as this makes for superb listening. Amigo who is one of the finest flamenco guitarists of the last 20 years has also shown the ability and desire to broaden his musical horizons. Witness the orchestral "Poeta" CD as a case in point. He has an effortless style and has never sounded more musical than on this release. There is a pattern or format running throughout the album. The Spaniard has written all the tunes on the disc and a handful of these feature vocals (in Spanish). Most of the tunes start with guitar, and handclaps or brushstrokes on the drums provide the percussion. The fiddle, accordion and flute then enter in the background providing a chordal support. Amigo then takes a break and the "Cetic" players develop their chordal structures into simple melodies which pick up perfectly on the established rhythm. Only a couple of these are traditional melodies.

Vicente has dabbled in this crossover style before as he featured on a CD released by Galician piper Carlos Nunez a number of years ago and no doubt would have jammed with some of the top Irish musicians who featured on that CD ("Os Amores").

I think this album is briliant. I'm a big fan of Vicente's and was really happy to see he'd got a new album released. As with previous albums I found this one to be a grower. Like all complex music, you don't warm to it instantly. And I'm not a great fan of Irish folk music, so hearing this for the first time was a bit of a shock. But he, and whoever did the arrangement, have done a great job of weaving together the two styles of music: flamenco and Irish folk. Plus as usual with Vicente there are touches of jazz and pop in places, and even a touch of funk on Cancion de Laura. Vicente's musical composition as usual is outstanding, beutiful melodies, harmonies and exquisite guitar playing. Hard to pick out a top track, but Roma is one that every time I hear it now I'm uplifted to the point of tears. That's how good it is!

I have been a fan of Vicente Amigo for a long time and have all his albums. He has a very elegant style, his tonality crisp and lingering. I enjoyed this album, it is experimental yet true to the roots of his playing. However, the songs are not as diverse in melody as they could have been. Don't get me wrong, I think that he is a brilliant musician but the album on the whole is almost like reflections on his current journey rather than a statement. The tracks that stand out are "Tierra", "Roma" and "Rio de la Seda". It will take more listening to but I always look forward to hearing from this young maestro. Thanks Vicente.

I first saw Vicente Amigo earlier this year at Glasgow's Celtic Connections Festival. I instantly fell in love with his performance and went online to preorder this. I wasn't disappointed and have been playing it over and over again.

Another great album from an outstanding musician and guitarist. The concept of mixing flamenco style with Celtic works very well and very original. In my opinion a 5 star quality work.
