No More

Orate is one of the best modern flamenco albums I've heard in quite a while. It's the debut of Diego Del Morao, a youngster who comes from a famous dynasty of Jerez guitar players - the late great Moraíto Chico was his dad for instance. As you can taste below, his exquisite, relaxed style has a certain 'now sound', without ever straying too far from puro roots. For more background, you can read an interesting interview with the maestro here. One excerpt: "I practice just enough to get by, and no more..." Hard to believe, but probably true, too.
