Such a loss, loved his sixtet and works with Al di Meola and Chick Corea.

R.I.P Maestro

I admit that there were times when I took Paco deLucia's playing for granted. I knew it's great but I was generally not listening to much flamenco.

Not too long ago I checked out his recording of 'Aranjuez' for the first time and I was pretty much left speechless. One of the most soulful and intense guitar player's ever, often it was his amazing technique that got the attention bit there was so much going on musically.

Paco de Lucia was the Jimi Hendrix and the Segovia of flamenco and will always be remembered as THE one.

I have a recording of a duo gig he did with John Mc Laughlin at the Montreux Jazz festival and it's stunningly inventive and deep.

"When I see a guitar, I see a devil".

Curious love-hate relationship.

A Legend. Gone too soon.

In the last few years he came to live over here in Mallorca, where he set a small studio/ProTools recording setup. He didn't play that much though, as was mostly dedicated to his young children. Such a terrible loss for them. RIP Maestro, as we all called him.

The world is sad, heaven is happy.

He would always make speak his guitar in a wonderful way, and knew how to convey emotions.

Huge thanks for your art.

Descanse en paz

Paco forever!

RIP Paco - a huge loss, a visionary

Was shocked to see this on front page of Le Figaro today
Paco de Lucia : l'hommage au Jimi Hendrix du flamenco

I remember first hearing "Friday Night in San Francisco" and thinking - damn, this guy smokes McLaughlin and DiMeola - who the hell could do that ?

They just showed a short clip of Paco at the end of the nightly news here…reminded me just what an amazing talent he was. He lives on in mine and many others record collection.
