Alegrias

12" LP

Availability: In stock

$21.99

Quick Overview

In 2006, Howe Gelb embarked on a journey with a gospel choir with the result the astounding, critically acclaimed album Sno' Angel Like You. This new chapter sees Howe embellish a troop of amenco playing gypsies, including the virtuoso guitarist Raimundo Amador (collaborated with Bjork and BB King) and is mixed by the legendary John Parish (PJ Harvey). Recorded atop a Cordoba roof with his 'Band Of Gypsies' in the AndalucA­a sun, Alegrias, is an exceptional new work from Howe Gelb. Originally only available in Spain, where the record enjoyed considerable success due in part to the wondrous contribution from Flamenco guitar virtuoso Raimundo Amador, Fire is pleased to be releasing the latest jewel in the considerable crown of Howe Gelb's musical delights. Many have tried to blend Flamenco with their native style without success, which makes Alegrias more than a coming together of music. Alegrias is an event, a special moment captured by a collection of musicians who have been graced with the fortune of seamlessly marrying the rich Flamenco rhythms to Howe's own unique sound.
