It is tempting to call the Romero family the Marsalises of Spanish guitar music, and Pepe Romero in particular a young lion of flamenco. These performances were recorded in 1960, a few weeks before Pepe's 16th birthday, while he was a student in Hollywood High School, and they vividly convey both the characteristic structures and the freedom of the style. The program emphasizes the range of flamenco music, presented through the original variations of Pepe and his father Celedonio (who shares CCD-14069-2 Spanish Guitar Music, with Pepe's older brother Celin). The power, clarity, and diversity of the performances make the album a valuable summary for anyone who has ever been struck by the beauty and passion of Andalusia's soul music.
