Carles Benavent ~ Nuevos Medios Coleccion ~ CD
For better of for worse, Benavent has had as much to do with shaping the sound of modern Flamenco as anyone. His bass playing is on hundreds of influential recordings, and the many bass players who have gotten into Flamenco have mostly taken their cues from him. This career retrospective spans the years 1983-2001, with a wide range of material arching from Flamenco to Jazz and back. A great intro to a major artist.
