Nos Hizo Falta Tiempo (Con Concha Buika)
Label: WM Spain
Concha Buika is the kind of artist that sprawling hits collections were built for. Already a fan of her sensual, scratchy vocals and dizzying (emotional, vocal, musical) range? Samples of just about everything you love are here, including tracks from her Chavela Vargas tribute with Chucho Valdes and her R&B stabs (the closest she comes to not quite perfect). Just getting to know the Spanish siren? Revel -- no, wallow in the graceful textures (flamenco, jazz, rumba, soul) and the way Buika's voice soars over and sears through them. This is gut-punchingly gorgeous music. You will fall in love.
