Paying Homage

Picked up this beauty because of the album cover really, as they don't come more flamenco than this one. I was of course already familiar with the great Enrique Morente (1942-2010), a singer known both for his interpretations of flamenco puro as for his wild experimentalism. Did you know the maestro from Granada once played the fusion thang with Sonic Youth? But here he digs way into the past, paying homage to Don Antonio Chacon, one of the ancient godfathers of the genre. On guitar: the always passionate Pepe Habichuela.
