Nuevo flamenco guitarist Tomatito was discovered by flamenco star Paco De Lucia at an early age and began recording in the early '90s, debuting with 1991's Barrio Negro. His mix of traditional flamenco and jazz stylings led to collaborations with artists in both styles, including Mecano, Duende, and Michel Camilo. Appearances on nuevo flamenco compliations like Narada's Flamenco: Fire And Grace cemented his reputation as one of the style's up-and-coming performers. ~ Heather Phares, All Music Guide
