Product Description & Reviews
When talents as formidable as Michel Camilo & Tomatito get together to make music it is an event. These two distinct voices from different musical worlds reunite on Spain Again, a scintillating musical conversation between two masters. Camilo, a brilliant pianist and prolific composer, is renowned for combing rich jazz harmonies with the Caribbean flavors and rhythms of his native Dominican Republic. Discovered in his native Spain at an early age, Tomatito is the premier flamenco guitarist of his generation and has accompanied Spain's greatest flamenco singers including the legendary Cameron de la Isla. Navigating the boundaries of jazz and flamenco, Camilo & Tomatito create an experience that is both unique and unforgettable. Camilo made his recording debut in 1985, when he recorded Why Not? (released on Japan's King label). In 1988, he made his American recording debut with the self-titled Michel Camilo (released on Portrait/Epic). Several more critically-acclaimed albums (released on Epic and Columbia) followed including, On Fire, On The Other Hand, Rendezvous and One More Once, Thru My Eyes and Concerto for Piano & Orchestra (released on Universal) as well as Triangulo, Live At The Blue Note, Solo and Rhapsody In Blue (released on Telarc). He has been honored with numerous awards, including a Grammyr, a Latin Grammyr and an Emmyr Award. In The All Music Guide to Jazz, critic Scott Yanow describes Camilo as one of the most stimulating jazz pianists to emerge in the mid-to-late 1980s. Seven years after their widely praised initial encounter, Dominican jazz pianist Michel Camilo, who cites Art Tatum and Keith Jarrett among his role models, and Spanish gypsy guitarist Tomatito, accompanist to the late vocal legend, Camarón de la Isla (the Jim Morrison of flamenco) are back with another stunning set. Although these two musicians emerged from very different backgrounds, there is nonetheless a certain commonality, the most obvious being that both jazz and flamenco are highly improvisational, demanding nearly supernatural levels of empathy between collaborating musicians. Although their debut concentrated primarily upon Spanish sources, they've now moved on to styles of lateral Iberian descent, notably the stylishly intellectual neo-tangos of Argentina's Astor Piazzolla, with a nod to his influential forebear, Carlos Gardel. Mr. Camilo's Juilliard training must have come in handy when essaying these works, as both composers were deeply familiar with European sources such as the works of French impressionists like Debussy, Ravel, and Fauré. The album also includes a gently reflective rendering of "Stella by Starlight," coming to a close with "Amor de Conuco," a romantically retro nuevo cancion-like ballad by Mr. Camilo's countryman, Juan Luis Guerra, with vocals by the composer. --Christina Roden
