I have enjoyed several CDs from Paco de Lucia, yet none of them impressed me as much as this one: is it the live atmosphere, is it the ripeness of a guitarist who has interpreted flamenco since its early age? Not only is Paco de Lucia a great virtuoso, he also seems to embody the very soul of Andalusia. Listen to the first theme, a long solo introduction displaying short intense dry phrases interrupted by deep silences, and ending up in a crescendo: you will picture the region, with its desolated aspect, its stones burning under the sun and its arid beauty... To any lover of flamenco music, I would recommend this work, for it is truly a masterpiece.

Paco de Lucia is quite simply the greatest Flamenco guitarist of them all, and could well be regarded as the greatest guitarist full stop (depending on one's opinion of course). A genius and an innovator he has pushed flamenco into wholly new areas throughout his career and inspired generations of new performers not only within the flamenco world but outside with his work alongside jazz greats, most notably as part of the guitar trio (with Al di Meola and John McLaughlin).
From ‘Mi Nino Curro’, one of the finest solo flamenco pieces you are likely to hear, through to ‘Zyryab’, a quite brilliant piece involving the whole sextet, this album showcases all of de Lucia’s extraordinary talent, his perfect sense of rhythm, his magnificent technical ability, and above all his passion for the music. Of all de Lucia’s albums this is the one that I listen to most consistently and the one that continues to inspire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paco's "LIVE" flamenco free spirit 12 Sept. 2000
By Edy Gibert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you enjoy "modern" flamenco music and Spanish guitar with a "free spirit", this CD is a perfect choice for your collection. Live in America presents 8 live performances including several of Paco de Lucia's classics like Zyrab, Tio Sabas, and Niño Curro, performed with his sextet during the 1993 East Coast tour. The flamenco ambience is very moving all along the 8 tracks and the concert's final includes the humorist theme of "Buana Buana King Kong which creats a very exciting flamenco climax. The sextet adds percussion, bass, flute and saxophone to De Lucia's sound managing to move flamenco into the free spirit of jazz-fusion. The CD's repertoire develops very much like De Lucia's concerts. Paco starts playing alone very slowly with his Hermanos Conde guitar, creating the mood for the night. Further into his playing, the hand claps and "zapateo", percussion, and then "cantejon" (the flamenco's singing style) incorporates progressively as the music develops. Live in America captures the magic and inspiration of Paco's live performances and my only regret is that this CD does not included more material played by the virtuoso guitarist during this tour. Nevertheless, the themes chosen are longer and more developed than the studio versions, thus display Paco's tremendous improvisation capacity which was developed by playing with different musicians from other music styles such as Al Di Meola and John Mc Laughlin. Once again, De Lucia proves that flamenco is a life style and a manner of feeling music, dance, and that his touch and personality go beyond the traditional sound of Spanish folklore. The themes played in this CD have a greater flamenco taste than other live CDs where Paco's orientation was closer to acoustic jazz-fusion flamenco. In summary, this material represents what Paco does on stage and transmits his flamenco free-spirit to the listener.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice but not P. de Lucia's best live work 27 Jun. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The songs are good with a decent mix of improvisation and instrumentation throughout. The final song though, "buana buana king kong" leaves me feeling like I just spent 10 minutes listening to someone frantically singing "I wanna wanna wanna wanna Kinkos!" over and over and over again. I'm pretty sure it is about a large iguana anyway. I don't know where it got the title "buana" from. As a PDL fan, I enjoyed the album, but not as much as I thought I would when I bought it.

I purchased the Mp3 version of the album, and found the quality to be good with a high enough bitrate that I couldn't tell it was digitally compressed.

I live in America, but saw Paco when he was a boy (really) in Spain. Have followed him ever since. Awesome is to small of a word.
