ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Flamenco se ha transformado nuevamente en uno de los géneros musicales más populares
del mundo. Siempre ha habido una turbulenta relación entre los tradicionales y los
innovadores de este Arte (no tan antiguo, aunque algunos le quieren agregar más siglos).
Esta fama ha dado motivo a que sean muchos los aficionados extranjeros enamorados de
la guitarra y que algunos de ellos sean al mismo tiempo magníficos concertistas. Un caso
real lo tenemos en Carlos Lomas, norteamericano que aunque solo lleva siete años en
España, es ya un consumado artista. Este álbum “Chocolate” fue originalmente grabado en
el verano de l978 en Málaga, España en vynil y re-editado para CD en Taos, New Mexico,
2007. Cada composición tiene su propia historia. En dos selecciones introduce aquí a la
madre de la guitarra, la 'ud, con varios instrumentalistas colaborando con las diversas ideas
y temperamento del compositor que anticipaba una música que en aquel tiempo todavía no
tenia nombre y se encontraba al márgen de lo arcano con lo moderno. Para los aficionados
del flamenco este álbum es un ejemplo de momentos que se pueden mantener siempre
frescos y perduran sin añejar con el tiempo porque de por sí son “eternos.”
Flamenco has transformed itself again into one of the most popular musical genres in the
world. There has always been a turbulent relationship between the traditionalists and the
innovators of this Art (not so ancient; even though some would like to add centuries to it).
This fame has motivated many foreign “aficionados” to fall in love with the guitar and that
some of them have become magnificent concert artists. Carlos Lomas, originally from the
USA, is one of those authentic cases and even though having been in Spain for only seven
years has become a consumate artist. This album “Chocolate” was recorded in the summer
of 1978 in Malaga, Spain, on vinyl and re-released on CD in Taos, New Mexico, 2007. Every
composition has quite a story. In two selections he introduces the mother of the guitar, the
'ud, with other instrumentalists collaborating with the diverse ideas and temperament of the
composer who had anticipated a music which in that time had no name and was on the
verge of the arcane with the modern. To the flamenco aficionado this album is an example
of moments that can always remain fresh and endure in time without aging because they are
in themselves “eternal.”
Some of the above text has been excerpted from Gonzalo Rojo’s “Oido al Cante” Sur de Malaga,
Sunday, August 7,1977, and as recollected by Carlos Lomas, 2007.
