Album Notes
Contra Tiempo is my current exploration in writing and arranging flamenco guitar for different textures, musicians and sounds. Some of the tunes feature a more jazz-fusion, LA sort of sound and some a more ‘traditional’ Spanish flamenco fusion. Either way, the pieces on this CD represent how I hear flamenco – rooted in traditional flamenco and the revolution begun by Paco de Lucia, but with a hint of jazz harmony, a sense of space or air, a hook here and there, and lots of room for the amazing musicians who play with me to express themselves, too.

With the LA guys – Joey Heredia and Ric Fierabracii – I wanted to show that this music is universal, and that in a different setting it could ‘sound’ different but retain its flamenco soul. With the Flamencats – Albert Anguela, Jorge Perez Gonzalez and Tuti Fernandez – I knew there would be more of a built-in flamenco sensibility, but these guys play jazz all day, too, and I wanted to give them a lot of freedom since they’re great players. I’ve known them forever so we have this trust and ease we’ve developed and I think it comes through. The tune Flamencats took an unexpected turn when we got together and I love what happened there.

I wanted to record a CD that reflected some of the sounds I’ve been playing with and that would give the guys some room to play. And I wanted to show that flamenco is more than people might think it is. Like the blues and jazz, it’s a folk music that has become universal and can be as broad as the world around it.
