Great singer who died young
Paul Magnussen | Campbell, CA USA | 04/13/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Great singer who died young

Fernando Fernández (1934-81), who died tragically young (from a heart attack according to one source, from a cerebral hemorrhage according to another) was a Gypsy with a rajo voice who was a master of the cantes of his native Jerez -- soleares, seguiriyas and bulerías. Perhaps because of the scarcity of material (he recorded comparatively little), the material on this album is not always totally felicitous -- e.g. there are moments when the accompanist is going in a different direction from the singer. However, there is much to enjoy, particularly the Fiesta por Bulerías at the end with Romerito, El Borrico, El Diamante Negro, El Sordera and El Sernita.

Guitarists are Paco de Antequera on two tracks, Manuel Morao on the rest.

The total time is 40'00"."
