Be warned -- this is an album that will grow on you very quickly. Jesse Cook is a Canadian flamenco guitarist who took the world fusion route at some point, basing his playing against a wonderful mix and match of percussion, synthesizers and samplers.

Intent listening to this album is a very rewarding experience indeed.

    Simply Fabulous

    I never tire of listening to this CD. Everything from the reflective "Cascada" to the hypnotic "Baghdad" is just irresistible. The combination of percussion, synthesizers, and other instruments as a backdrop to the flamenco-flavored guitar of Jesse Cook is fantastic. What a great talent!

    One of the world's greatest guitarists!

    Tempest is still my all-time favorite album of Jesse's. If you love flamenco, and you love AWESOME guitarists...this is your man. Segovia would be proud. Jesse is probably the greatest living guitarist on the planet. And, if you can believe this, he is even better live than in the studio. Ten stars from this listener!!!!

    Excellent!

    This is one of my favorite cds (and I have several hundred)! It was my first introduction to flamenco music thanks to a Barnes and Noble listening station. It's very upbeat and peppy!

    Like Ottmar Liebert's music? If so, you'll like Jesse Cook's CD!

    I've really enjoyed Jesse Cook's Tempest CD! It's especially great to listen to first thing in the a.m. to get you going and put you in a good mood. If you like, Ottmar Liebert's Nouveau Flamenco CD, you'll like Tempest!
