The Story of Flamenco can either be very painful to hear -- what with all that frenetic boot slamming and insanely intense guitar playing -- or it can bring the promise of sultry evenings and vague notions of cultural richness and full-scale dramas played out on-stage. It can be both, really, and this fine Capitol collection brings all the history and the excitement home by way of 17 cuts spanning the long history of the form. Featuring some of the world's most accomplished flamenco musicians, The Story of Flamenco includes performances by such well-known figures as Gabriel Moreno, Pepe de la Matrona, and Paco Isidro. So, pour yourself a nice glass of Spanish wine and prepare to be enthralled.
