blanco y negro

by Rafael Cortés

/
  • Musician or bandit? According to an old Spanish saying, these are the two choices when you are born on the winter solstice. As life would have it, the great Paco de Lucia, who died in February 2014, was also born on 21 December. Upon his hero’s death, Rafael Cortés wasted no time going in the studio to record blanco y negro, a CD dedicated to Paco de Lucia.
    Rafael Cortés dips deep into the well of richly expressive southern Spanish Gitano culture and heritage: whether Buleria, Guajira, Fandango, Rumba, Bolero or Soléa, - the guitarist gives the music his own personal touch. Abrupt tempo changes and occasional melancholic moments lie at the heart of this multi-faceted album.
    Rafael Cortés’ “blanco y negro” album is a coherent homage to the works of Paco de Lucia: fiery Andalusian spirit inspired by libertine delight, each note the bearer of soulful emotion.
    A tribute to the ‘MAESTRO de los maestros’ – there’s no better way of saying it. A sincere musical bow before the towering greatness of Paco de Lucia.
