5.0 out of 5 stars DELICIOSAS!, 25 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Las Pequenas Cosas (Audio CD)
Something I adored about flamenco fusion group Ketama was the guitar: the solos and all those little comments between the lines of the songs. I never knew which tocaor played most of these - Juan Carmona 'el Camborio' or his cousin Josemi; the videos concentrate on charasmatic singer Antonio. But when I discovered that Josemi had finally produced his first solo album I literally flew (well okay I was going to Spain anyway) to buy it.

Flamencos, don't be put off by the idea of some jazz and (God help us) rap - the album is a kaleidoscope of influences, but all beautifully channelled through Josemi's flamenco sensitivities. (And anyway the jazz is Spanish jazz, the rap gentle and seductive). I've never know an album so varied (from the bewitching buleria with Paco de Lucia, to Ketama-like ballads, to themes from Puccini's Tosca and the film Gran Turino); it was quite a risk to do this, but for me - and the Latin Grammy people - he completely succeeded.

One other thing: the recording. How does he get his guitar to sound so clear? It really feels like he's sitting there in the room.

Buy these 12 Little Things - you won't regret it. Deliciosas!
