Flamenco Guitar by Alberto Vélez (Book + CD)
This contains eight of his works for Flamenco Guitar, written and fingered by Oscar Herrero. It includes documentation on the professional life of Alberto Vélez, who was an all-round guitarist, who stood out for his musical knowledge. He played with all the big names, Ramón Montoya, Niño Ricardo and Mario Escudero. He accompanied Vallejo, Cepero, Marchena, El Gloria, Fosforito, Tomás Pavón, Valderrama, Canalejas and others while they sang.…This is about that grand maestro with whom, to my great, good fortune, I shared many a stage at the very beginning of my artistic career,. We shared happy moments, and sad ones as well, throughout which he always set a wonderful example, both as an artist and a man. This is about our beloved and dear friend, Alberto Vélez. Through the expression of my music, I would like to let Alberto know that all his teaching and advice were not in vain.
