Howe Gelb is a brilliant and unpredictable artist. While his album 'Sno' angel like you' was recorded with a gospel choir and, apparently, mostly written on the plane to the recording session, this here is his Flamenco album.
Already released in Spain last year it now sees a worldwide outing.
A Band of Gypsies is a real Flamenco ensemble and they feature on most of the songs with their typical strumming and knocking on the guitar bodies.
Mix that with Howe's Arizona desert sandpaper voice and you get a magical result.
Totally unexpected music made for those who are looking for something unusual.
