To my mind, that makes it all the better, seeing that he brings experience and maturity to the pieces. Gerardo is a guitarist who has got lumped with the whole "nuevo flamenco" movement. This is an injustice. Here we have an album that shows true innovation within an authentic flamenco framework, rather than a kitsch pastiche, as perpetrated by Ottmar Liebert et al. Now, while I might agree with some in the flamenco world who might argue that Gerardo is not true "flamenco puro" and will point to the likes of Nino Ricardo as masters of duende, the enlightened of that group should still accept this work.

To do otherwise would be akin to dismissing Eric Clapton because he doesn't convey the same blues authenticity that Robert Johnson did; who cares? He's taking it further. The pieces here are not all new: many have appeared in different, even more "technique-oriented" versions on his Spain-only albums "El Gallo Azul" and others those who like Calima really should try to get this album, as it is awesome.

However, what we have here is confidence, economy and confidence. His Bulerias, which in "Gallo" far outstrips any Jorge Strunz excursion for sheer stunning technical display, in this album is relatively restrained, but masterful. And the Jazz-fusion pieces are truly awesome pieces that remind me of some of the best Chick Corea recordings a tribute to Danilo. While they run out their predictable flurries of notes albeit, a little out of sync, would you believe?

In some respects more melodic than Paco de Lucia and certainly more accessible, both flamenco novices and enlightened afficianados alike should find something here. I certainly hope he records again.

Gerardo Núñez

Nunez creates music worth immersing in out of the spare instrumentation of his guitar and the distinctive Iberian rhythmic hand clapping known as palmas. Any time I start this CD, the entrancing instrumental compositions pull me straight through to the end. Nunez ' jazz-tempered Andalusian flamenco is passionate, highly developed and instantly rewarding to the listener. Turn down the lights, set the volume and images of decorated bolero jackets, bright red roses and Mediterranean sights at once fill the head. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
