Your Daily Lick: Chus Alonso

Flamenco Cat (Potaje Music)



For the Latin music lover who's heard it all. Alonso's music is hardly flamenco, at least as we're used to hearing it - more a digestible medley of jazz, Latin, classical, and avant-garde, with flute and piano as lead instruments. The record doesn't return to overt flamenco until the last of twenty tracks, and even then it begins slowed-down and sparse, more for thinking than dancing.
