City Of Ideas
"City Of Ideas" is an album which gives us an insight into Vicente Amigo's personality. This album, in which we can sense the loneliness of the creative process, captures Vicente's search for spontaneity - he doesn't want his listeners to guess the intricate musical processes behind his sound; instead, he renders his musical web invisible and invites us to immerse ourselves in pure feeling. His music is truly for everyone - inebriated with melody and rhythm, seeming to flow with the forces of nature. Vicente invites us to enter his "City Of Ideas", where there are "Three Notes To Say I Love You", where "The Afternoon Is Like Candy", and where "the eyes of the Alhambra never cease to watch..." where Manuel, the gypsy, sits down to enjoy a love song, a bolero; and where children sing out words like "Tata". which someday we might understand the meaning of.
