Since his famous Guitar Trio recording with John McLaughlin and Al Di Meola, Paco De Lucia has been part of the love story between jazz and flamenco music. A love story with a promising future, as this track shows. De Lucia had seldom really brought jazz influences into his own music before this record, where he adds a trumpet to his band. Besides the soft horn riffs that punctuate the haunting melody of this rumba, De Lucia improvises in a virtuoso way that mixes jazz and flamenco techniques, and shows his interest in (among others) Wes Montgomery. This challenging blend confirms that musical borders are made to be crossed, at least by masters.
