Jesse Cook’s One World Echoes August CD of the Month

OneWorldSIZED

Nouveau Flamenco guitarist Jesse Cook has been putting out great albums for two decades. The Canadian musician came to renown with his debut album, Tempest, in 1995. At the time he road in on the coattails of Nouveau Flamenco pioneer Ottmar Liebert and bands like The Gipsy Kings, but Cook always had his own sound, one that that morphed and fused over the course of two decades and several albums. He’s taken his flamenco influenced guitar playing into new settings with every album. On One World he goes global and electronica in a studio infused album of journeys from the serene to the ecstatic. He’s joined on one track by guitar master Tommy Emmanuel. One world is the Echoes CD of the Month for August.
