BMG have made public a live video performance of “Buana Buana King Kong” from flamenco guitarist Paco De Lucía. The video is taken from Paco De Lucía’s performance at the 1984 Montreux Jazz Festival and appears on the upcoming release Paco De Lucía: The Montreux Years, out the 24th of February, 2023. It will arrive in audiophile heavyweight vinyl, MQA quality CD and HD digital.
Paco De Lucía: The Montreux Years is the latest release in the Montreux Years series and is a collection of Paco De Lucía’s live performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival between 1984 to 2012.
One of the world’s most celebrated Flamenco guitarists, Paco De Lucía helped legitimize Flamenco music across the world and was one of the first flamenco guitarists to have successfully crossed over into other genres of music including Classical and Jazz.
De Lucía was noted for “his fast and fluent picados and was known for adding abstract chords and scale tones to his compositions with Jazz influences”. These innovations saw him play a key role in the development of traditional Flamenco and the evolution of new Flamenco and Jazz fusion.
