Simply the best, 23 Dec. 2010
I can't add much to what others have rightly said about this masterpiece, but for me Concerto is not only desert island material but the one you choose finally out of all your desert island selections. 19 minutes and 16 seconds of bliss indeed.
What I especially loved was that it starts with the original Rodrigo, simple guitar, then moves through Miles Davis' adaptation via the trumpet in Sketches of Spain, and then creates its own sublime combination of elegaic sax or trumpet or piano or guitar floating free, but moved restlessly along with an underpinning urgent rhythm from bass and drums. The best.
