RIP Paco de Lucia

Wonderful tribute to a great artist, Paco de Lucia who died of a sudden heart attack at age 66.


BENISE – Salsa Salsa

I’ve seen that Ads all month around town about Nights of Fire! opening this week at the El Dorado and it had me curious.

“Benise – Nights of Fire!” will light up the Eldorado Showroom January 24 through April 1, 2012. Hailed as the Latin Riverdance by the LA Times, this world music and dance production takes audience members on an exotic journey through Brazilian samba, Cuban salsa, Spanish flamenco, Argentine tango, even African tribal chants and drums.

In spite of the LA Times proclaimed “Hail as the Latin Riverdance,” I’m still intrigued. Looks like it might be fun.

Ottmar Liebert: Winter Rose

One of my favorite genius Flamenco guitar musicians, is Ottmar Liebert who has re-Posted Winter Rose, on his site and it’s FANTASTIC!

From his website:

“Ottmar breathes new life into holiday favorites with sensitive, even haunting, arrangements of O Little Town of Bethlehem and O Holy Night. The CD also includes fresh interpretations of classical music, including Fauré’s Pavane and Les Roses D’Isphahan and Tchaikovsky’s Le Café from The Nutcracker. But perhaps the greatest delight are the six new songs written by Liebert especially for “Winter Rose,” including Westcoast, The Longest Night, Kora/River of Stars, and A Sweet Persimmon. Each captures the essence of the season. The result is an album that is both familiar and inventive, heartwarming and evocative.”

Do yourself a big favor and go here and listen particularly to Track #4 “le Cafe,” a sample of it is included in this Flickr video from BY-YOUR-⌘:
