Vitoria Suite: Paco de Lucia Wynton Marsalis
Released earlier this year in Europe to wide acclaim, Vitoria Suite releases today as a 2-CD + DVD set in the United States on EmArcy/Universal.
Vitoria Suite is a 12-part work, the structure inspired by the 12 measures of the blues.
Composer Wynton Marsalis uses the impulse of the blues as a foundation to jointly explore the jazz and blues of North America and the indigenous Basque music and flamenco of Spain. Paco de Lucia brings his magic to the journey.
Support Jazz at the Lincoln Center. That would be nice.
Get this from Amazon.
