ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Re: Flamenco Guitar
His love for the flamenco guitar continues. This recording is about paying homage to all the teachers who
have inspired him. We all learn our craft by imitating our teachers and it is natural that sooner or later we
would return to those "roots" just to keep in touch and remember them. Carlos Lomas had the good fortune
to study personally with some of these great masters: Diego de Gastor, Mario Escudero, Juan de la Mata,
Emilio Prados, Mario Cintas, Juan Maya "Marote," Pedro Escalona and his first teacher, Frank Miller Jr., who
introduced him to the music of Ramon Montoya, Niño Ricardo, Sabicas, Perico el del Lunar, Melchor de
Marchena, Paco Cepero, Paco de Lucia and others.
Some invaluable advice to those who want to learn the flamenco guitar is to go into it with innocence and
openness of heart, and paying the greatest attention in learning to accompany the song and dance.
Carlos wants to thank Davo Bryant, his colleague and good friend for assisting in the production, recording,
mixing and collaborating as the wonderful percussionist/musician that he is. Very special thanks to Gioia for
her continual support.
"The experience of working in traditional flamenco settings is unmistakeably present in
the solo work of guitarist Carlos Lomas. His unerring sense of compas, and the musty
flavor of real flamenco permeate his music to an extent that is rare in guitarists these
days, and even more so guitarists outside of Spain. Recommended."
Guillermo Juan Christie, Flamenco Connection
GUITARRA FLAMENCA
Su amor por la guitarra flamenca continua. Esta grabación consiste en dar un homenaje a los maestros que
lo inspiraron. Todos aprendemos nuestro oficio imitando a nuestros maestros y es natural que tarde o
temprano volvamos a las " raices " para estar en contacto y recordarlos. Carlos Lomas ha tenido la buena
suerte de estudiar personalmente con algunos de estos grandes maestros: Diego de Gastor, Mario
Escudero, Juan de la Mata, Emilio Prados, Mario Cintas, Juan Maya "Marote ," Pedro Escalona, y su primer
maestro Frank Miller Jr., quien lo introdujo a la música de Ramon Montoya, Niño Ricardo, Sabicas, Perico
el del Lunar, Melchor de Marchena, Paco Cepero, Paco de Lucia y otros.
Un invaluable consejo para aquellos que quieran estudiar la guitarra flamenca es que lo hagan con inocencia
y un corazón abierto y poniendo la más grande atención de aprender a acompañar al cante y al baile.
Carlos quiere agradecer a Davo Bryant, su colega y amigo por asistirlo en la producción, grabación, mezcla y
colaborando como el gran percusionista/músico que él es. Gracias muy especiales a Gioia por su continuo apoyo.
"La experiencia de trabajar en tradicionales circunstancias flamencas esta sin error
presente en el trabajo de soloista del guitarrista Carlos Lomas. Su infalible sentido del
compás y el añejado sabor del flamenco real embebe su música en una forma que es
rara para los guitarristas de hoy en día, e inclusive más para los guitarristas de afuera
de España. Recomendación."
--Guillermo Juan Christie, Flamenco Connection.
