This is Joan's most successful CD to date, and deservedly so. Though his voice is showing a few signs of wear, he's still a marvelous singer, and his songs are so full of poetry and e hit single from this CD is "Secreto de Amor", about a secret love affair, and has an infectious bolero rhythm. It's a slightly fresh sound for him, with a catchy refrain that you'll search yourself singing along with.Another lovely song is "Amorcito Mio", also about a discreet love..."amorcito mio~mio tan del alma~mio tan escondido~mio tan especial"...my favorite track of all is "El Toro", about how to defeat sadness using the imagery of a bullfighter. The lyrics are terrific and wise, and the guitar work of Ramon Stagñaro is sensational, as it also is in another unbelievable song, "Anoche Hablamos" about a "kiss and make-up" e booklet insert has simple to read lyrics and information (so appreciated by me) and photos, including a lovely one of his son Julian, the topic of the latest track on the an's melodic songs seem to be slices of his life, beautifully written lyrics that tell private stories and shared with his listeners. He's one of my very favorites, a amazing artist with much to give the world.
The Gipsy Kings, who sing mostly in Spanish and apparently live and record in France -- go figure --, are incredibly prolific. Unless one is insatiable for lots of flamenco guitar and gypsy music, the collections, either this one or best of or both, will probably suffice. The disc contains a couple instrumentals and, as the title suggests, all the songs are of love, frequently the leaving kind of love (both leaver -- No Volvere -- and left -- Tu Quieres Volver). My single favorite is the lilting Caminando Por la Calle, love at first beat and some unbelievable la-la vocalizing. Other picks: Mi Corazon, Hable Me, Mujer. Some will be interested to know that My Method (A Mi Manera) is better in Spanish, but not by much. Overall, very enjoyable music.
I've been carrying this CD from my vehicle to the house (and back again) for the latest 3 weeks. The backup singers will seduce you. Most noticeable is the sound of the instrumentalists, and in particular the delicate nuances they afford and, in general, how INCREDIBLY GOOD it all sounds together. If one is to assume that artist's albums are supposed to improve, in general, over time, then this is in my opinion Mme Portuondo's best to date. This is the sort of album that makes you say (even so soon after its release)
Omara Portuondo's voice would create any song sound good. What this CD lacks in guest stars, Omara makes up for it with some amazing classic Cuban songs and brazilian influenced arrangements. She even sings the latest track partly in Portuguese. As with all these Cuban albums recorded in the EGREM studios, there is a special sound the old studio environment leaves on the recorded works. This is a amazing album by the only woman of the Buena Vista Social Club, not too a lot of members are left, have fun this CD from one of the survivors.
Para las personas que no hayan escuchado las primeras producciones, como solista de esta gran interprete - deleitense con este disquito!Here, you'll obtain a feeling for some of this artist's early work as a soloist. It's amazing to obtain close to the roots of GSR ...
I don't know a word of Spanish... well, I can count to twenty, and know a few phrases, including some that have worked their method into the English language (eg, vaya con Dios, dos cerveza por favor), but basically just your average redneck gringo. However, I love music, have a very nice audio rig, and a Mexican health professional who comes in twice a week to support me. She's great, and likes music, so I asked her who she likes and went on Youtube to sample Joan Sebastian. I liked him, especially Un Idiota - even a redneck idiot like me could figure out that title - and then Secreto De Amor began... I was hooked, went straight for the Amazon and am listening now to El Toro, another winner. All the songs are good, so getcha some, gringo.
I love listening to this cd it is very relaxing and there is a couple songs that makes me wish to obtain up and dance . Where i live this cd is nowhere to be found but i finally bought it and was well worth the i have over 1000 cds and this one is in the top 5 of my favorite . I love all his melody but secreto de amor has to be my all time favorite.
To think that those of us not born in Cuba might have missed out on Omara is nearly unthinkable. Omara's voice is the kind of instrument that comes along very rarely--sweet, rich, full of expression and sadness and joy. This album is a true find, with sad/sweet violins, the marvelous son based rhythms of golden age Havana, and fluttering guitar work. By now, those listening to the Cuban revivalist melody (Buena Vista Social Club/ Ibrahim Ferrer/ Eliades Ochoa/ Ruben Gonzales) will be familiar with her name; those who love the tropical rhythms of Cuba will wish to snatch this up. Omara sings with a golden glow about her voice; this is not the record created by a 20 year old--you can hear the experience, the joy in her art and the sadness of some of the songs suffusing everything like butterscotch. The highlight of the album for me is Hermosa Habana, a song about the golden days of what must have been, at one time, a glamorous and exciting city. Its gentle sadness and evocation of bygone days leaves me haunted. "Si llego a besarte" melts the heart with a liquid accordion intro, but is kept from saccharine by a gently hipswaying beat, and the unfailing sureness of Omara's interpretation--her grand lilting vocals floating, effortless, over the mix. I cannot rave enough about this unbelievable disc, this unbelievable voice, this marvellous music. If you are reading this review, then this disc is probably for you--don't be scared. Highly and unreservedly recommended for aficionados of attractive singing, tropical beats, the scent of coconut and rum, and a memory of moonlit nights in a torrid city.
This is a unbelievable compilation of some of The Gipsy King's most romantic songs. I am not one that by rule likes greatest hits, but in this case, I do. In my opinion, one would have to find far and wide to search melody with more passion and emotion. This is from el corazon-the heart. The guitars speak volumes while Nicolas Reyes' one of a kind voice carries us through all the beauty and suffering that has encompassed Flamenco for generations. With this, a suggestion: Grab your lover and some vino, place this CD on and see what develops...I bet it'll be hotter than The Costa Del Sol!My favorites are: "Un Amor"/"Gitano Soy"/"Love & Liberte"/"Quiero Saber"/"Caminando Por La Calle" (My most cherished of all)/"Trista Pena."Although I am elated to see Latin melody gaining popularity, some of todays stars are pale in comparison to The Gipsy Kings...Adios amigos- Que Dios te bendiga.
