ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hierro's blazing speed, impeccable clarity, and impressive technical mastery are astonishing even to those well familiar with the arsenal of the flamenco guitarist. Make no mistake, this is not a debut. With over ten years on the stage, five years in the Encanto flamenco quintet, studio recordings in 1996, 2002, and 2006-2008, Hierro is no novice to the studio room. This album finally brings his multi-year efforts together to a fruition well worth the wait.

A Gemini by sign and an artist by soul, Hierro is a flamenco guitarist of a new generation. Drawing from flamenco, jazz and acoustic, his music combines diverse influences cast into the singular shapes of the arte flamenco – the solea, the fandangos, the alegrias and the rumba. Each piece follows the style of the flamenco canon, but also departs from the traditional forms in emotion and feeling, imparting a modern feel and an open touch to Hierro’s music. Known for his “iron style”, undisturbed by large audiences, and for his technical mastery, fellow musicians jokingly called him “iron man” (Hierro), a stage name under which Hierro is back with his new album Sunset Colors, featuring some of the most moving music for flamenco guitar.

Sunset Colors is a flamenco rendition of the colors of the evening sky. With recollections, emotions and shadows mingling like the changing cloud colors, it takes you to a trip starting with a firy Fandangos, going through a pensive Rodnena, a powerful Allegrias and a jubilant Rumba, and concluding with a real masterpiece for the flamenco guitar - a Soleares entitled 'Deep Blue', a true tribute to the passion of the flamenco soul.
