Editorial Reviews

Nino de Ricardo (1904-1974) is usually called Nino Ricardo, but we hold to the ''de'' since he was the son of amateur guitarist Ricardo Serrapi; his Christian name was Manuel. His career was both commonplace and exceptional, beginning in the cafes, cabarets and fiestas in the province of Seville, and then later at the demand of the greatest and most famous players, such as La Nina de los peines (with whom he made his first record in 1924), Cepero, Conchita Piquer, Pepe Marchera, Caracol and Antonio Mairena, with whom he made his last record. He gave solo concerts later in the 1950s, especially in France and Belgium, and made very few recordings as a soloist, including one LP for Le Chant du Monde in 1955 (which is reissued here in its entirety, considering its rarity) and for Hispavox (from which a selection is included here).

Outside of the actual flamenco culture existing in Andalucia ( southern region of Spain ) and the circle of foreign "aficionados" from various places around the world, the name of Nino Ricardo will not be familiar. In all probability, a good number of people reading this review ARE "aficionados" of one degree or the other. Nevertheless, for the benefit of those who happen to be new to flamenco, "Nino Ricardo" ( born Manuel Serrapi Sanchez 1904 and died 1972 in his native city of Sevilla ) was THE flamenco guitarist during the 1950's and 1960's ( of course he was active professionally for a long time preceding that decade ). No young flamenco guitarist, even those belonging to the tight knit and unique gypsy guitar traditions of such "flamenco" towns as Moron de la Frontera and Jerez de la Frontera was immune to the tremendous creative artistry of Ricardo.
Although the pieces included on this excellent compilation certainly are vivid representations of Ricardo's inventive skill, one should bear in mind that he never really was a "concert" flamenco guitarist in the sense of his famous contemporary Sabicas ( the 1st international concert flamenco guitarist ) and the present day phenomenon, Paco de Lucia. Nino Ricardo's real forte was accompanying the "Cante" ( the word refers to flamenco song but the "Cante" in actuality embodies a whole culture and the world view contained therein ). The "meat and potatoes" of flamenco guitar playing has always ( even today ) been accompaniment to the Cante and to a lesser extent the "Baile" ( dancing ). And in playing for the flamenco singers ( "cantaores" ), Ricardo was supreme ( his recordings in the 1960's with Antonio Mairena and El Chocolate are great examples ).

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fairly high quality of recording because of the absense of digital technology, but in listening to his flamenco music one will discover that Ricardo is truly one of the great founding fathers of the Gypsy guitar art. This is well worth obtaining for your CD collection and studying for the pure attack and strength of El Maestro Niño de Ricardo in playing flamenco guitar, especially to understand the earliest forms of this art.
