    What free flowing improvisation?
    Grisha recognizes that everyone copies Paco and that includes Him.
    The question i want answered is; why everyone (Sadly including Grisha)copies Paco’s hair/head shaking and his fake ecstatic facial gestures.This is terrible “B” acting and so many copy this insincere mannerism.It’s not believeable when Paco gets “all Groovey” and less when imitated.

    Grisha certainly is personable and i would like to hear him play his ideas rather than play Sabicas and Paco.I have the originals and as well as he copies them it’s still a copy.

    If you are looking for the “new era” in flamenco check out Diego del Morao’s new CD Orate…..he takes flamenco guitar to the next level!

    Of course any guitarist has to have somebody to look up to in any kind of music, but it seems like sabicas and paco de lucia are only individuals where current guitarist are only willing to go, what about diego del gastor or his nephew diego del moron but nobody knows about them porque unfortunately sabicas,juan martin, paco del gastor are the most advertised around the world and praised upon and dont get me wrong their great players in their own right. I think this guy had no idea what he was talking about, he may have the techniques correct but their aint no musical expression in him, my evidence is by watching his videos on youtube, he sounds mechanical.
