New version of the Paco de Lucía Integral, 27 CDs his complete work remastered. "Cositas Buenas", his last album, comes as a new in this new Integral. Now in a new economic format. This collection is a unique tour of the work of Paco de Lucia from 1964 to 2004. Since Almoraima (1976) Paco had not recorded an album which we could call authentically Flamenco. Not like his early recordings, which centred on classic guitar toques as played in concert. On Siroco, he abandons for the moment the sound of The Sextet to mark out in eight pieces the new vanguard of Flamenco creation. A record for lovers of good music, a mature and worthy work.
Des ruines romaines de Timgad aux noces du soleil et de la mer à Tipaza, du désert algérien cher à Eugène Fromentin à la conversion d'Isabelle Eberhardt, des tableaux de Delacroix aux femmes de Biskra d'Etienne Dinet, de la prise d'Alger en 1830 à l'indépendance du pays en juillet 1962, de l'émir Abd el-Kader à Bouteflika, Malek Chebel, en observateur averti du pays où il est né, où il a grandi, n'élude rien et aborde beaucoup de non-dits. …
With Lighthouse, saxophonist Tim Garland, pianist Gwilym Simcock and percussionist Asaf Sirkis make the move to completely egalitarian collective. It's also the first album to feature the trio without any additional guests. Garland's Lighthouse Trio first came together on the saxophonist's If the Sea Replied (Sirocco, 2005), an ambitious song cycle that—in addition to including mates from his impro-folk Lammas and Acoustic Triangle, which by that time also featured Simcock—was scored for members of the Northern Sinfonia Orchestra.
