Michael Hauser

Paco de Lucia's death from a heart attack earlier this year robbed the world of one of its most original guitarists, regardless of genre. A quirky virtuoso, de Lucia was the pioneer and king of contemporary flamenco music, of course. But American listeners knew him just as well for his collaborations with fusion jazz men John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola, Chick Corea, and Larry Coryell, and Paco crossed over into the classical world on occasional, as well. His concert a couple years ago in St. Paul was odd and fascinating, co-starring some great dancers and folk percussionists -- the man was in his prime 'til the end! Flamenco guitarist Michael Hauser has put together a welcome tribute to de Lucia, gathering together fellow flamenco artists Ben Abrahamson, Daniel Volovets, Trevor May (not the Twins pitching prospect), Michael Ziegahn and Diego Rowan-Martin, along with brother Tony Hauser offering some Brazilian tunes and discussing Brazilian music's influence on the master.
