PACO and JOHN: Live At Montreux 1987 (DVD+2CD)

On 15th July 1987, two guitar maestros, Paco de Lucia and John McLaughlin, shared the stage at the Montreux Jazz Festival for an evening of breathtaking flamenco music. The show opened with a solo piece from John McLaughlin, followed by a solo piece from Paco de Lucia, before the two virtuosos joined forces in a series of duets for the rest of the evening. The repertoire is drawn from their solo albums, from albums by The Guitar Trio and from covers of music written by friends such as Chick Corea and Egberto Gismonti. This is a superb concert for any lover of great flamenco guitar playing or indeed for anyone who loves to see great musicians performing at their very best.
