CONCERT REVIEW


Extraordinary Javier Coble in a refreshing work where not only versions in the piano of the flamenco guitar but also styles like the Classic Spanish and sounds of Iran or the Middle East. Coble explores the roots of the Flamenco music in connection with the Arabic tunes and the jazz, and impregnates the atmosphere with variety of feelings. This centennial musical tradition take the train of the 21st century breaking molds, borders and taking control of new fans. Thus the art gypsy-Andalusian has much future.

Some pieces of this first CD are originals of Coble and the title is taked of a spectacle of the National Ballet of Spain with music of Javier Coble and choreography of Mayte Bajo, guest in the concert to exhibit his Spanish dance and the castanets. She takes part in Arrión, a Spanish popular Song, in Llanos del Real, the song of Paco de Lucia, in Amares, of Javier Coble, and in the theme that gives name to the álbum. De Azabache y Plata, in which tanguillos, verdiales & zapateado Coble and the smoothness of coreographer, that shines its newer dance touch, from the classic school dancing with agile and very fluid forms.

The piano is not a frequent instrument in the flamenco passion, but Coble journeys by the innovating ways of the pianist Arthur Pavón and obtains an own mood that it gathers that rythmical and melodic expressiveness. Coble even uses a Hindu guitar with keys. It is pleasant to hear the song of sax, the poetic flutes and Turkish clarinet of Patxi Pascual, besides the percussions of Sergey Saprichev and the electric bass of Kepa Osés. A shining group. And an advance of its next CD among others tunes The popular flavor of Divertimento. The alive fusion of Coble, the spiritual magic or the melancholy deserved the applause of the public
