Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
i agree with the point made about "neo-Flamenco", but there are diamonds in the rough here. Camarón with Tomatito, Miguel Poveda, Enrique Morente (one of my favorite recent cantaores) with Pepe Habichuela, Pepe also does a beautiful solo "Granadina", Gerardo Núñez with El Indio Gitano. It even has a piece by Pastora Pavón "La niña de los peines" her popular decades were the 1930's and 40's she was/is revered by all of us as a great female pioneer in Flamenco. And a Sevillana by Martirio, not the most traditional, but she never was nor wanted to be. Does it contain modern music? Does it have some Jazzy and Junky pieces not fashioned to be called Flamenco? ¡YES!, but for the money buy it. would i have bought it if it were $30-$40... probably not. but that is because i have plenty of music from many of these artists, of which, some you can not buy here in the states. It is entitled, "Beginners Guide..." which is what it is.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you're looking for traditional flamenco music you'll probably be quite disappointed with this collection. Although the description talks about following the history of flamenco from the earliest days up to today, these performances all have a contemporary sound. True, the sound quality is good; but unfortunately the performing style of nearly all the music here is nothing like what you might have heard in a cafe cantante or a spontaneous juerga of dyed-in-the-wool flamenco lovers.

There are definite modern jazz influences throughout the 3 disks--not just on the last one, which is admittedly neo-flamenco. And speaking of neo-flamenco, that is what this album probably should have been named: flamenco "updated" to the 21st century.

Specific problems: (1) though traditionally the cantaores always sang solo, here we have them sometimes singing together--and in harmony, no less; (2) rhythms are often syncopated as in modern jazz; (3) there is little feeling of spontaneity here, which was the soul of traditional flamenco.

I consider my purchase of this album to be a mistake.
