Eduardo Niebla - My Gypsy Waltz (4 stars)

Eduardo Niebla - My Gypsy Waltz

(LMR Records)

While Eduardo Niebla wittily illustrates his debt to diverse cultures with a photo of himself brandishing his guitar alongside a rustic, horse-led gypsy caravan, it’s his debt to rich family community that makes his music resonate deeply. Forty years of playing flamenco guitar jazz-fusion style, intuitively following classical and popular tendencies, is assumed in eight innovative pieces that pair him with his Indian influenced band.

Niebla’s own lived internationalism ensures this is a passionate musical journey involving gems and tantalising experiments. Stunning pieces like ‘Phoenix’ exquisitely capture his heartfelt respect for life in all its bittersweet complexity.
