Jose Fernandez Torres--Tomatito--is Spain's top gitano guitarist. Internationally known for his long collaboration with the late legendary star Camaron, Tomatito made his first solo recording, La Leyenda del Tiempo, in 1987. His latest album Barrio Negro, one of the most successful "new flamenco" records in Spain today, shows his spectacular renderings of pure gitano rhythms such as bulerias and tangos. One Spanish critic called Barrio Negro "un disco flamenquisimo" --the ultimate in flamenco.
