Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Seven years after their widely praised initial encounter, Dominican jazz pianist Michel Camilo, who cites Art Tatum and Keith Jarrett among his role models, and Spanish gypsy guitarist Tomatito, accompanist to the late vocal legend, Camarón de la Isla (the Jim Morrison of flamenco) are back with another stunning set. Although these two musicians emerged from very different backgrounds, there is nonetheless a certain commonality, the most obvious being that both jazz and flamenco are highly improvisational, demanding nearly supernatural levels of empathy between collaborating musicians. Although their debut concentrated primarily upon Spanish sources, they've now moved on to styles of lateral Iberian descent, notably the stylishly intellectual neo-tangos of Argentina's Astor Piazzolla, with a nod to his influential forebear, Carlos Gardel. Mr. Camilo's Juilliard training must have come in handy when essaying these works, as both composers were deeply familiar with European sources such as the works of French impressionists like Debussy, Ravel, and Fauré. The album also includes a gently reflective rendering of "Stella by Starlight," coming to a close with "Amor de Conuco," a romantically retro nuevo cancion-like ballad by Mr. Camilo's countryman, Juan Luis Guerra, with vocals by the composer. --Christina Roden

Product Description

When talents as formidable as Michel Camilo & Tomatito get together to make music it is an event. These two distinct voices from different musical worlds reunite on Spain Again, a scintillating musical conversation between two masters. Camilo, a brilliant pianist and prolific composer, is renowned for combing rich jazz harmonies with the Caribbean flavors and rhythms of his native Dominican Republic. Discovered in his native Spain at an early age, Tomatito is the premier flamenco guitarist of his generation and has accompanied Spain's greatest flamenco singers including the legendary Cameron de la Isla. Navigating the boundaries of jazz and flamenco, Camilo & Tomatito create an experience that is both unique and unforgettable. Camilo made his recording debut in 1985, when he recorded Why Not? (released on Japan's King label). In 1988, he made his American recording debut with the self-titled Michel Camilo (released on Portrait/Epic). Several more critically-acclaimed albums (released on Epic and Columbia) followed including, On Fire, On The Other Hand, Rendezvous and One More Once, Thru My Eyes and Concerto for Piano & Orchestra (released on Universal) as well as Triangulo, Live At The Blue Note, Solo and Rhapsody In Blue (released on Telarc). He has been honored with numerous awards, including a Grammyr, a Latin Grammyr and an Emmyr Award. In The All Music Guide to Jazz, critic Scott Yanow describes Camilo as one of the most stimulating jazz pianists to emerge in the mid-to-late 1980s.

4.0 out of 5 stars Many Good Reasons To Buy December 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Though I am familiar with the work of both Tomatito and Michel Camilo, I didn't even know this collaboration existed until I recently spied it in the racks at a well-known book and music chain. Then, as soon as I saw that the duo performed a tribute to Astor Piazzolla, I had to have it. So I went home, got on amazon, and found it much cheaper here from one of the amazon partners than at the book store and ordered it immediately.

It arrived from Argentina in about a week and I anticipated pure bliss while inserting it into the CD player. And mostly, I was not disappointed.

Here's what I like best:

1)Libertango-Camilo and Tomatito deliver just over four minutes of sonic wizardry. Libertango is one of the most internationally famous of Piazzolla compositions, and this rendition just dazzles.

2)Fuga Y Misterio-A very technically challenging Piazzolla piece. It always reminds me of something Frank Zappa might have written had he been Argentine. Camilo and Tomatito give an exquisite rendering.

3)Adios Nonino-Probably THE most covered Piazzolla piece and the most personally meaningful to El Troesma himself. I've heard many different interpretations of this, at least a dozen of them by Piazzolla himself. This rendition is starkly reminiscent of the rare version which features Piazzolla and guitarist Cacho Tirao.

4)Twilight Glow-An escape to serenity for when the lights are low. Think Al DiMeola in one of his acoustic moods.

5)A Los Nietos-Dedicated to Pat Metheny but again strongly suggestive of Al DiMeola. Excellent!

and,

6)La Fiesta-I first heard this Chick Corea composition on a Stan Getz album. I liked it then and I like even more the interpretation given here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triumphant again June 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Spain was a triumph in Jazz. Both Michel Camillo and Tomatito are stars in their field. As a pianist Camillo is one of the most distinct voices of his generation. Both bold and tender, at the same time robust and subtle. A voice recognized out of many. The same goes for Tomatito. His work on the flamenco guitar is one that is seldom approached by other players. When both man teamed up for Spain they sounded like a match made in heaven. Tomatito and Camillo sounded as if they had been playing together for years. Spain left you desperate for more.

Finally there's a follow and it does not disappoint. Both men play the strengths of their instruments very well. Both men complement each other even better. The album never fails to grab your attention. The ballads on the record are as captivating as the more up-tempo pieces. Although both men are technically very accomplished they never fall into the trap of tying to bedazzle the listener with technical bolstering. Instead the record leans heavy into strong melodic and rhythmic structure, leaving you floating on a warm summer breeze.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Monsters Creating Beauty October 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I had the opportunity to see them live on their only presentantion at the National Theater in Santo Domingo this past 29th of September. These two artists play together as if they were Heart & Lungs. Following Camilo with the piano is like Mission Imposible but Tomatito, without hesitation, follows in a way that it merges its flamenco roots with Camilo's caribbean beat...the funny part is that they also play tangos. Both are legends. This fusion is the pure definition of music pleasure. This is a MUST HAVE CD in your Jazz, New Age, Lounge, Caribbean, Flamenco or Tango music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS I'VE HEARD THIS YEAR August 8, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This album first appealed to me when I heard that Juan Luis Guerra had recorded lead vocals on "Amor De Conuco". Then, I happened to be in Madrid and it turned out that Michel and Tomatito were gonna perform there. I went to the concert and I thought it was amazing. They began with the Astor Piazzolla classic "Libertango" and went on to perform such great tunes as "Stella By Starlight", Piazzolla's "Adios Nonino", Chick Corea's "La Fiesta" and others, ending with Corea's acclaimed "Spain", recorded by Michel and Tomatito a few years back for their first "Spain" album. Michel's energy is amazing when it comes to playing live. Sometimes, he'd play his piano with such feeling and such speed that it seemed as if it were four hands playing. Tomatito did pretty much the same, making his flamenco guitar sound beautifully, reminding me of his great elder, Paco De Lucia. All of that energy and all of those dynamics are captured on "Spain Again", making it one of the finest records that i've had the pleasure of listening to this year. I give it five stars....by far.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Mo' Bettah" Masterpiece !!! June 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Mo' Bettah" is a Hawaiian slang for much better & this masterpiece of Flamenco/Jazz fusion is much better than the first release by these 2 virtuosos !!! they sound much more comfortable in the interplay of the guitar with the piano & the recording of both instruments is better balanced than on their first, Grammy-winning recording... for my taste, this recording represents an evolution of the "piano with flamenco guitar" concept that was initiated by Chic Corea w/ Paco de Lucia on Chic's "Touchstone" classic & this duo's first effort... this session is simply a masterpiece of Beauty-full Music !!! their perseverance with performing together really shows growth thru experience in the creative communication between Michel & Tomatito- & that evolution creates a totally satisfying listening experience for the gypsy-hearted afficianados who will enjoy this music immensely & intensely... simply awesome stuff !!!
