CONTINENTAL RECORDS

In the world of flamenco there are many excellent guitarists, but few can be thought of as brilliant. However, Andrés Batista belongs to those few who have risen above all and have placed themselves in a class of their own. He first played with Carmen Amaya--the almost legendary flamenco dancer-- and with Vicente Escudero, as well as María Marques: he has played in practically all the capitals of europe, and in marry has appeared as a solo performer. His success is not surprising when one listens to "Guitarra Flamenca--Andrés Batista" (Parlophone o PMC7028 o PCS7028), an excellent LP, both artistically and technically. Side 1 offers his own Suite Flamenca, a brilliant piece presenting some of the principal flamenco rhythms--Tientos, Alegrías, Seguiriyas, and Bulerías-- together with Improvisacicmes Flamencos, a haunting and perhaps even intellectual approach to flamenco music which I found unusual and interesting. Side 2 offers the lighter side of flamenco, with two rumbas and a tango played in flamenco style and raised to a very high level by Batista´s brilliant guitar playing. And in the same vein "flamenco!" (Saga o ER08033) is well worth listening to. If features a very good Spanish guitarist.
