I saw Elisio Parra and his band just the other night at the Cafe Central in Madrid, where they were concentrating on songs from this album. Thoroughly enjoyed the gig & bought the cd there and then. Slightly disappointed - even though it is a live cd it doesn't capture the excitement and intimacy of being there.
Parra creates a very unusual fusion of jazz with Spanish folk music, incorporating a strong North African element (plus the odd bit of Cuban music thrown in).
Well worth listening to, but try to to see him live.
