Editorial Reviews

Jacinto Gallego (1907-1971) was known as El Nino de Almaden, or the son of his hometown, a small but important mining town in Extremadura. Coming from a poor miners' family Gallego worked from the age of twelve sorting iron-ore, and in his teens was set to work underground. Meanwhile, however, he practiced traditional cante, taking part in local Sunday festivals. He soon showed exceptional promise, especially in the repertoire of the ''mineras'' and other ''songs of the Levant'' (the coastal region of Andalucia to the west of Malaga). He narrowly escaped a tragic mining accident and his patron, El Nino de Genil, a noted cantaor at the beginning of the century, pushed him into a professional career in cante. Considered the ''Senor del cante grande'' by the brilliant guitarist Ramon Montoya, Gallego found himself in demand - first in Spain, then abroad and, later, with the record companies, whose efforts afford us this reissue. In the twenties, Gallego kept company with the grand Master Antonio Chacon, and in fact Gallego's polished voice, and the fragile thread that it weaves, is reminiscent of Chacon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chacon's heir April 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Francisco Gallego (c.1905-1968), with his wide knowledge, high smooth voice and mastery of fandango-derived cantes, was considered the natural successor to Antonio Chacón. Here (with the same accompanists — and recording dates — as Pepe de la Matrona) he performs feelingly, not only the ones for which he was famous, but the cantes mineras, and even a couple of seguiriyas — in which connection, the last track is a serrana (a slower form of seguiriya), not a serenata as stated.

It should be said that in his day, El Niño recorded a great deal of crap; these tracks, however, have been meticulously selected. Highly recommended.

The total time is 48'44"

P.S. For a list of (and links to) all 20 albums in this series, see my So You'd Like To... Listen to Great Masters of Flamenco Guide.
