ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This recording is a documentation of the formative years of Carlos Lomas as he evolved from being a classical guitarist into becoming a flamenco guitarist and ultimately creating his own style within the Flamenco Genre. He began the serious study of Flamenco in 1965 and rapidly advanced to the level of professional within a few years. By 1969 he was working in night clubs, restaurants, and concertizing in New York City. Also he had begun to perform in “Tablaos” in Spain where he became accepted into the inner circle of the Flamenco community. Then his career really took off; but this recording is about the beginning.
Tracks 1-7 depict the classical stance and popular music such as “Granada” and “Malagueña” and two flamenco compositions – “Rondeña” by Mario Escudero and “Castillo de Xauen” by Esteban de Sanlucar which Carlos learned from Mario.
Tracks 8-13 are strictly flamenco pieces becoming more and more intense and they are what you could call “compilations” of traditional material strung together with “Falsetas” (or Variations) of different guitarists, most of whom Carlos actually studied with.
Tracks 14-17 present Carlos as beginning to express his own style although some of the falsetas are still from other guitarists, notably Diego de Gastor and Paco de Lucia.
These last four tracks are immediately different in the sound and reverberation effect as Carlos was playing a Santos Hernandez guitar and the recording was done in a professional studio in Madrid in 1975. All the other tracks were played on a Jose Ramirez guitar in New York City in 1972 on a portable Sony cassette recorder and were a “test” to see if he could be capable of making a record, and after all these years here they are!
