ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A note from Chris:

This album is a labor of love for my family and friends (this means YOU!). I have been asked multiple times to do a project like this and I am so glad I did. It was a blast! Although, at times it was hard to be in the "Christmas Spirit" in July in Phoenix, AZ! I hope this album brings you happy thoughts and adds a little joy to your holiday season. And who knows, you might just listen to it once or twice throughout the year. Olé! -Chris Burton Jácome

BIO

Chris Burton Jácome began playing guitar in 1986. While living in Sevilla, Spain, Chris studied flamenco guitar with some of the greatest flamenco performers of this era. Since Chris’ return from Spain, he has been performing over 200 shows a year and has played many sold-out performances throughout the US and Canada.

Chris’ music can be heard scoring the Emmy Award Winning PBS television special: “Flamenco” (broadcast in Arizona by KAET-TV Channel 8: Mike Sauceda, producer), on the popular TV shows “Kyle xy” and “Greek” and Chris’ flamenco version of the Christmas Classic, “Joy to the World”, was included in Coldwater Creek Catalogue’s 2004 Christmas CD. Chris will also soon be heard as the featured soloist in the movie soundtrack of “9/tenths”.

Chris’ music has received critical acclaim from the beginning of his career. From Chris’ debut CD, Motivación, the title track “Motivación” finished in the Top 10 in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest World Music Category. Out of 25,000 entries! Chris’ second album, “Pa’lante”, was just as well received: “Highly recommended for fans of flamenco, nuevo flamenco, world music, or well-executed and recorded guitar music in general” –(Guitar Nine Records) Chris’ 4th album entitled, “Flamenco” is an exciting new work eliciting reviews like “Jácome’s gorgeous, evocative compositions are a testament to his abilities as a writer and performer…”-(Get Out! Magazine’s Chris Hansen) and “An extraordinary and fresh-sounding, passionate album...”-(Slipcue.com June 2005).

Chris is currently the musical director for one the largest touring flamenco dance companies in the United States, Calo Flamenco, Ballet de Martín Gaxiola. Chris writes the music and lyrics for Calo’s productions and performs live with his musical ensemble for Calo’s Broadway-ready flamenco dance shows.

Flamenco Guitar Christmas
I'm not a fan of Christmas music and my office mate was playing it to my dismay. In my desperation, I searched for Flamenco Christmas music and found your CD. I LOVE IT!!! Thank you for making Christmas music that I actually enjoy listening to.

Joseph Marquez

Great mix of songs
The selection of songs on this CD brings out different flavors and rhythms of flamenco guitar music. I am not an expert on this type of music but I know good music when I hear it and this CD has some wonderful selections. The recording is clean and the tonal quality of Chris' guitar is balanced. I have heard him live and he sounds like the CD. I look forward to his next CD.

Diana

A refreshing change from the ordinary
I collect all kinds of christmas music, and I was looking forward to receiving Chris' recording. It has the traditional favorites we're all familiar with, but with a nice twist. He starts out with the basic, classic melody, then kicks it up with his own personal flamenco style. My favorite is "The Little Drummer Boy."

Wendy

Excellent - just as anticipated!
I bought several to give as gifts to family and friends. Everyone has loved it! It is a fun break from the traditional versions of these songs that you constantly hear on the radio. Silent Night is always a favorite for me and I also really enjoy this version of Ave Maria. The CD is a must have for your holiday music collection!

Cee Bearden

Thank you Chris!
for making my Christmas more Flamenco. I bought extra copies for a teacher and my favorite Spanish Restaraunt. The CD was on my wish list for a year and I am so glad to finally have my wish. I am still listening after Christmas and plan to keep it with me in all my travels. Thank you, Chris. It just makes me happy.
