With a masterful blend of flamenco, bossa nova, pop and jazz
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 05/11/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Paris Concert is a DVD recording of six-time Grammy Award-winning guitar player and singer Jose Feliciano and his five-piece band performing in Paris. With a masterful blend of flamenco, bossa nova, pop and jazz elements in their repertoire, they perform widely beloved pieces to an adoring crowd. Fans of internationally-influenced Latin music are sure to love this stellar video. Highly recommended. The songs played are "Chico And The Man", "Crazy Heart", "Billie Jean", "Como Fue", "I Got A Woman", "Rain", "Bamboleo", "If You Don't Know Me By Now", "Higher Ground", "Oye Guitarra Mia", "Beyond The Sea", "Affirmation", "Cherry, Cherry", "Porque Te Tengo Que Olvidar", "Money", "Oye Como Va", "Purple Haze", "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Que Sera", and "Light My Fire". 98 minutes, 16:9 picture format.

It seems that the only time you hear Jose Feliciano is at Christmas when every radio station pulls out his standard "Feliz Naviidad". A whole generation - or more - has missed this great talent. I was always a big fan and saw him in the early 1970s in concert.

What makes this DVD special is that's it's a 98 minutes recorded just SEVEN MONTHS AGO (as I write this) in August 2008 in a club in Paris, in front of an enthusiastic audience. Over the course of 20 songs, Feliciano shows that his fingers still fly across the guitar strings at lightening speed and the passion of his playing is still high. He does a mix of songs in Spanish as well as some covers of pop hits ("Rain", "Cherry,Cherry") with his own interpretation After his extended instrumental intro to Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean", he sings the words so that, for the first time, I could understand every word. It takes guts to cover Hendrix's "Purple Haze" but Feliciano does a more than competent job here.

He bookends the concert with the two songs - other than the aforementioned Christmas standard - that are best associated with him: "Chico and the Man" and, of course, "Light My Fire". The only bonus is his percussion solo.

If you are a JF fan, you'll want this. If you only know him from the opld, standards, check out this DVD. His supporting band - heavy on Latin percussion and keyboards, is fine, but it's Feliciano's figures that are the stars on the stage.

Jose Feliciano Band-The Paris Concert

"No matter if you are a Jose Feliciano fan or not, you should see this DVD. I have been a fan of his since 1967 and he has never failed to amaze me with his talent. Jose has mastered everything he has ever recorded, be it a cover of the Doors "Light My Fire" or his own compositions "Rain" and "Chico and the Man". When I saw the song line up for this concert I thought, OK he is doing instrumentals of MJ's "Billie Jean" and Jimi's "Purple Haze" but I was wrong, He is still amazing. Hear what you love and love what you hear."

"Excelente concierto de Feliciano en tierras Parisinas, en el se resume todo lo que es capaz de ejecutar un músico de su altura se pasea sin ningún problema por el pop, bolero, jazz, flamenco y sobre todo ROCK!!! Impresionantes covers de Santana, Jimi Hendrix y Eric Clapton definitivamente inusual ver a Feliciando aplicando técnicas como el pedal steel WAH WAH!! Espero que se pueda editar algún CD con este material.....ESTE ES EL VERDADERO JOSE FELICIANO UN MÚSICO DE CALIDAD MUNDIAL!!!!"
