ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Artist Profile - The Tomas Michaud Story

Most guitarists in the Flamenco influenced genre today seem more interested with finger pyrotechnics and how many notes can fit into a musical passage than in communicating on a deep emotional level with their listener. Though technical proficiency is not in short supply, Tomas Michaud is clearly a different kind of guitarist.

While creating his own blend of Smooth Jazz and Flamenco guitar with subtle twists of Latin American grooves and Middle Eastern Percussion, Tomas weaves a melodic, almost vocal, tapestry with his guitar that, if one listens carefully, can breath beauty and sacredness into even the most mundane events of daily life. There's a kind of mystical yet practical spirituality to his music that has the effect of both calming and energizing.

Tomas creates music that is exotic with a lingering sense of the familiar. Perhaps it's his ability to meld the sights and sounds of his travels to far away places with his upbringing in the American pop culture. He writes the kind of songs that creates images of places you'd like to be often - even if only in your imagination. His influences are such diverse music talents as Santana, who communicates profound beauty in the way he plays even a few notes, and the Gipsy Kings, who are masters at creating songs which take the listener on a romantic, exotic adventure.

In his new album," New World Flamenco Jazz", songs such as "Seville" not only take you on a musical imagery filled trip to Seville, Spain where he composed the song, but brings us face to face with the mysterious and somewhat magical force that delivers ideas and realizations in our dreams while we sleep. Inspired by a dream, one can't help but wonder where powerful and evocative melodies like this come from.

From beginning to end of this CD Tomas puts forth a musical calling for embracing and being grateful for who we are, for being alive and believing in ourselves and for appreciating both the uniqueness and the common elements we share as different cultures and one humanity. An example of this can be experienced by listening to the song "Moroccan Lullaby" with eyes closed. While this song lures us on an adventure to an exotic world of belly dancers and musty smells one can't help but experience, at the same time, a world where diverse instruments and sounds work together seamlessly and in perfect harmony.

It's been said that music has the ability to "sooth the savage beast". If this is true Tomas takes it to new heights. He communicates intimately; one on one, with his listeners with music that seems to reach right into a deep, tender place. The effect is that of not only soothing the emotional beast but uplifting on a profound spiritual level as well.

Music to live by, not just background music
Tomas Michaud's music is beautiful music to live by, not just background music. It's perfect to listen to on the way to work, to play at work, and to play at home. I love it! It has a magical way of setting the right mood - no matter what you're up to but does not distract you or cause you to stop what you're doing. It just enhances your life. I can only say try it! and you'll see what I mean.

Great stuff - perfect mix of Flamenco Styles and Smooth Jazz
From the first listen of the CD I found myself wondering "how does he do it". So many times you find a Flamenco inspired guitarist trying to play as fast as possible and, while technically correct, it doesn't lend itself to an easy listen.

This is a CD to put in the player and drive a scenic trip, enjoy a classy dinner party with or just sit with the lights off and let your mind take a musical vacation.

great
This was a rich and smooth jazz style of Spanish sounding music. There is no real killer cut, but it is all consistently very good to excellent throughout, and I would recommend this to anyone who likes this style of music. No vocals, which is nice. I will listen to it often, and maybe try another of the same artist.
