Paco De Lucia - Almoraima (1999) Retail CD
In Almoraima Paco de Lucia continued to move away from the traditional forms of flamenco. He used electric bass and new rythms and harmonies. Influenced by his travels in South America he incorporated rythms and instruments to widen out his sound. Having said that this is still a very recognisably flamenco record. It has a sharp dry quality and eschews the later softer harmonies. On tracks like "Ole" pulsing rythms and harsh harmonies drive the song forward with an irresistable pulse. The title track is a beautiful, forceful and intense flamenco statement, which for me contains everythingmore… that makes this music so expressive. On other tracks he moves through moods from joy to sorrow and on "Rio Ancho" creates an irrestable melody with a light bouncy rythm; it's one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard. I cannot recommend this record enough. For me it contains everything wonderful about flamenco and is more expressive than later albums. I went to Spain to buy this and was not disappointed.
