Gabriel Osuna is a good friend of mine and one of the great players in L.A., so I was very pleased that our schedules finally worked out to have him come in to record some videos, and he brought along percussionist Gerardo Morales to play some Buleria (with a Solea intro) on a great new Felipe Conde FC26 blanca with mechanical pegs (it’ll be up on the site some time this coming week) and some Alegrias on a 1972 Antonio Marin blanca. Good reference for a classic Madrid flamenco and an equally classic Granada blanca.

    It is great to see Gabriel playing. He is an amazing artist. He is also a friend of mine but I don’t get to see much of him since I moved to this desert. My former student Marco Antonio Torres introduced Gabriel to me and he came to the house and we played and had dinner. We played at Marco’s sisters wedding together. Since I play Jazz and Flamenco we incorporated a bit of it together. I see he uses a lot of those Jazz voicings I use in his Flamenco. Wonderful.

    Wow! That was awesome! beautiful chord voicings, excellent guitar, incredible technique, nice choice of palo. Thanks for posting. This is high quality in every form and a breath of fresh air for the art of Flamenco.

    The sound from the 1952 Hauser 1 that Eva Beneke played was sublime. Wonderful. Thanks

    Bravo! Well done. Both guitars sound wonderful. But it takes a great player to bring out the quality.
