Untitled[edit]

"It is said that he is able to play 16th note triplets at 180 bpm (beats per minute)." This needs attribution, and is probably not accurate. 16th notes at 180 bpm is not all that fast. Paco and Al Di Meola both play 32nd notes at 110 bpm fluidly on Mediterranean Sundance/Rio Ancho from Friday Night in San Francisco. This is the equivalent of 16th notes at 220 bpm.

Please note that it says "16th note triplets", not "16th notes". 16th note triplets at 180 bpm means 18 notes per second - while 16th notes at 220 bpm is "only " about 14.67 notes per second. J. M. 14:04, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
(So 16th note triplets at 180 bpm would be the equivalent - in terms of speed - of 16th notes at 270 bpm or 32nd notes at 135 bpm, which is also 18 notes per second.) J. M. 14:15, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Cleaned up some of the comma and semicolon errors here. Jasonguit 04:47, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Paco plays Manuel de Falla[edit]

It is said in the documentation accompanying the much earlier classical "crossover" album ("Paco De Lucia - Interpreta A Manuel De Falla"), that Paco had to "painstakingly" read musical notation... granted, it's not easy for him, but he has done it long before the 1991 Concierto de Aranjuez album. Also, he is apparently skilled in "cifra" (Flamenco tablature) reading/writing, so saying that he's not adept with classical musical notation reflects a cultural bias... Paco's far from illiterate.

Cite tags[edit]

This article has a lot of weasel words and other unsourced statements. It would be great if someone could clean this up and offer a more neutral point of view about this fantastic artist. MarkBuckles (talk) 08:18, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

One of the greatest flamenco guitarists of all time[edit]

On digitaldreamdoor.com, click Music Lists, then click Greatest Specialty Guitarists. Lucia is #2 on greatest flamenco guitarists. I don't know how to link this because the web address for the page is digitaldreamdoor.com, meaning it does not change when you click on a link. However, I hope this can be used as a source.

Digitaldreamdoor is a personal webpage and not a very good citation for Wikipedia. Proper citations should come from professional publications. see WP:CITE or WP:V. Anger22 02:09, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

deleted text[edit]

Have deleted the following weasel wording from the introductory para.:

Many think that de Lucia fluently goes into these territories and plays like no other, whereas some purists of these other genres will state that he is just making a venture and is still a flamenco player at heart, lacking the pure jazz style[citation needed].

Will try to continue with a general clean-up of this article. --Technopat 10:34, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Shame on you![edit]

Intead of deleting, deleting, and just deleting, what this encyclopedia needs is adding, adding, ADDING valuable, informative, and factual material. The article sucks, not for what you and others may think is surplus information, but due to missing information, about Señor Francisco Sánchez's formative years, about his many contributions to the Flamenco genre, including the introduction of South American percussion, about the modern way of setting up Flamenco ensemble, etc. To write about those subjects needs expertise and considerable work, and hence has much more merit, than your beloved deleting. --AVM (talk) 22:45, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

The article's only references appear to be two DVD's ... are there no books or articles about him out there? And speaking about DVDs, the 2002 documentary suggests that "Entre dos aguas" (the song) was somehow a turning point in his career, in the sense that he gained a much wider audience after that (while before he might have been known primarily among flamenco aficionados and specialists). If that's indeed the case, perhaps it should be mentioned in the article. 81.96.125.240 16:49, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

No mention of Elegant Gypsy?[edit]

No mention of his wonderful work in Mediteranian Sundance on Al DiMeola's Elegant Gypsy album? This is where I (and I'm sure many others) first heard of Paco... 24.18.201.182 (talk) 16:04, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Roma not gypsy[edit]

I was taught in school that the term gypsy borders upon being a racial slur and that the preferred nomenclature is Roma / Romani. Maybe we should change this no? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vvibbert (talkcontribs) 21:38, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

I believe it is acceptable to use it here. When talking about Roma in Spain they call themselves Gitanos which translates into Gypsy. I hope this helps. --Gibmetal 77talk 00:22, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
No, not really; check the article here on Romani people for a discussion of this. +ILike2BeAnonymous (talk) 00:27, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
If you look at the more relevant article on Roma in Spain, you can see the term is widely acceptable. --Gibmetal 77talk 01:07, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
Actually, that article shows no such thing: it merely uses the term loosely (and sloppily), without a proper explanation of its origin, such as is found in the Romani people article. It is offensive, though still widely used, and shouldn't be used in an encyclopedia article in preference to the more appropriate term (Roma or Romani). +ILike2BeAnonymous (talk) 01:49, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
If you really believe it is offensive, I suggest you go ahead and change it from the hundreds of other articles which also use the term Gitano/Gypsie... I still assure you that if someone is proud of calling himself a Gitano it cannot be an offensive term to use in this context, but I see you'd rather revert than discussing things properly to arrive at a conclusion. --Gibmetal 77talk 08:37, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
Gibmetal77 you're way out of line and your argument doesn't quite work. Minority groups routinely adapt offensive slurs for use by themselves as a source of strength and pride. Homosexuals at times use the word 'fag' and 'queer' to refer to themselves. Some Americans of African decent use the term 'nigger' in the same way. Just as it would be offensive for an encyclopedia to use the words 'fag' or 'nigger' it must also be true then that if 'Gypsy' is considered offensive by a large number of Roma and the term 'Roma' and 'Romani' have no such negative connotations, using 'Roma' or 'Romani' is the correct decision here. Leaving the term 'Gypsy' just because it has been used frequently would be a mistake of laziness. Unlike other racial slurs, the use of 'Gypsy' is not being used out of hate or an intention to demean, but out of simple ignorance of the issues at hand. Vvibbert (talk) 02:52, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Incorrect information: Paco de Lucía has not gypsy or roma ancestry. I had to correct the text. He is well known for being a "payo" guitarist admired by gypsy fans. Provide a reference or credible source that Paco de Lucía is of roma descent, before give erroneus information to the people that read wikipedia.

Well, a reference to that effect (that he's not of Roma descent) would be nice, rather than just your suggestion for using a Web search, which proves nothing. Do you have any valid sources for that? +ILike2BeAnonymous (talk) 04:02, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
I'm not even going to look at any of those links; I have no idea what they are. If you can't be bothered to do anything more than just dump some Google search results here, then I guess you're not serious. How about giving us a link to a credible source, along with a description of what that source is? +ILike2BeAnonymous (talk) 18:12, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

In Andalusia the word in use is Gitanos (gypsies), so stop inventing B.S.- Otherwise, go ahead and try to use that word, Roma, when talking to the locals. They'll think you're speaking about the capital of Italy. --AVM (talk) 22:52, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Pronunciation of his name[edit]

Will anyone add transcription of his name? Just I'm not sure how it is pronounced, whether it sounds like Paco de LuSia or Paco de LuCHya. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.30.232.76 (talk) 08:53, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Your first guess is close enough, though in Peninsular Spanish pronunciation the 'c' in Lucía is closer to a 'z' than to an 's', except (Good gracious!) in Andalusia, the region where Paco was born and raised. My advice: learn some Spanish language. You'll find it interesting. --AVM (talk) 23:01, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Joaquín Rodrigo misquoted[edit]

Regarding the "Concierto de Aranjuez", the article claims "Joaquín Rodrigo declared that no one had ever played his composition in such a brilliant manner". This is an exaggeration, in the referred source Rodrigo says nothing of the sort, he just defines De Lucías's interpretation as "beautiful, exotic and inspired". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.32.71.61 (talk) 12:14, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Expert review[edit]

I would suggest that the ideal source to complete this page would be to request an analysis from Paco Pena —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.252.12.175 (talk) 23:10, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

External links is not where unused sources belong![edit]

The External links section is not for an excess source parking lot. They belong here on the talk page. Caution: I haven't checked them out to see if they are acceptable. Please put sources here in the future. Also, we do not use photo galleries, per WP:IG and "See Also" links also go here. Thank you. --Leahtwosaints (talk) 12:18, 17 March 2012 (UTC)


Pathetic Article[edit]

Apparently, the only criterion for citing a source in a wikipedia article is that it previously was published. Correctness or the source's reputation is not particularly important. I can think of no reason for citing the opinion of Dorien Ross as to Paco de Lucia's status otherwise: she is, after all, only a clinical psychologist, and certainly not a musical expert of any kind. Except possibly, of course, it the author's mind. So, we have a musical illiterate quoting a musical illiterate on a musical point. How grand. I think I may contribute an article on advanced quantum mechanical angst in the poetry of John Keats. Whaddya think?

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Paco de Lucía/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

Reviewer: Ritchie333 (talk · contribs) 08:51, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Lead[edit]

  • "He is considered by many to be one of the finest guitarists in the world..." with four references. The problem here is that "considered by many" is very subjective and tends to bring out complaints about violating WP:NPOV, even with multiple references on it. (Have a look at WP:Lamest Edit Wars#Cleo Rocos for a "good" example). A better action here I feel is to pull out individual quotes and attribute them to specific people eg: Dennis Coster, author of "Guitar Atlas, Flamenco", said that De Lucía has been "considered one of history's greatest guitarists".
Done.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 15:16, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
  • I'll come back to the lead after doing the rest of the article. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 09:10, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Okay, sorry about the delay, carrying on with the article

Early Life[edit]

  • The Allmusic source doesn't have any accents on De Lucía's real name - I assume this is general ignorance of Spanish on their behalf.
Yes.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 14:59, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Regarding his choice of name change, the source mentions this is a common custom in common in Andalusia, which is worth clarifying here.
Done.
  • Which source is being used to cite that he practiced up to 12 hours a day, every day from the age of 5?

[1]

  • "At one point, his father took him out of school to concentrate solely on his guitar development." Can you clarify this is cited to Pohren, as per the following sentences?

Pohren p. 41 added.

No, the source says that he learned them easily and embellished them which initially annoyed his brother.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 12:09, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
  • "Combined with natural talent, he soon excelled" is POV. If he has natural talent, a source will report it as such.
The source does support it.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 14:59, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
  • In general, I would check over this section, as it comes across as being quite critical of De Lucía's father.
Critical? It says he was very strict with his son's development as guitarists, that's about it..♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 15:01, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

1960s[edit]

  • The wording of the first paragraph is a bit repetitive - you've got multiple sentence starting with "In". See if you can put some variety in, otherwise it just reads a bit like a bland list. Not essential for GA, but if you took this paragraph to FAC in its current state, the reviewers there will probably say the same thing.
I think it's OK.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 12:07, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
  • "it [La fabulosa guitarra de Paco de Lucía] has become one of his better known pieces" needs a cite - best to find a source and quote it directly.
Removed.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 12:08, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

More later... Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 14:54, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

1970s[edit]

  • "his version of Mario Escudero's "El Ímpetu", a bulerías, was well received in particular" is a bit vague with respect to the source given. A better quote from it would be the reference to the Concierto de Aranjuez.
Removed well-received.
  • Can we cite "Entre dos aguas" becoming arguably his best known composition"?
Done.
You'll never get a source to verify it other than the programme itself unless I do a Schrod-John Clark-like month-long inquiry at the BBC which I think is rather unnecessary. We accept sources for what actors say in interviews or video-based sources on here in good faith, only the youtube vio link should be removed which I've done. It's perfectly acceptable to reference a reputable figure such as Parkinson from a BBC programme.
Sorry, wasn't making myself clear. I agree with what you've just written, and have seen arguments on WP:RSN to that effect. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 21:05, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
  • His 1977 marriage and children probably belongs in another "personal life" section.
Very little is known about his personal life, He's extremely private, it would be too short to have it separately.
Removed link, he doesn't have an article.
  • The last quote in this section is a bit bulky - any chance we could split it up or paraphrase it a bit?
Cut, partly written in prose.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 20:59, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

1980s[edit]

Try this

  • " this became arguably the piece most associated with the musicians" probably wants a cite.
  • Not an issue but I'm surprised that I, a Floyd nut having sent several of the band's articles to GA myself, did not know of his involvement in The Hit. Povey's a good "go to" source for basic dates and facts.

That's what the source says so I think it's fine, I didn't know either.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 21:20, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

1990s[edit]

  • "Although the sextet had declined after 1986," - is that declined in popularity or in activity?
Activity, clarified.

All I can find is this "copyvio" of a TV documentary which is at his home in Majorca [2]. I'll reference the documentary without the vio link, that should be fine. Worth watching Rich, that's one of the finest looking women I've ever seen in my life, no kidding.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 21:06, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

This section is incomplete, as far as I can tell. I personally saw The Guitar Trio in the 1990s as they did a sort of reunion tour. They appeared, if memory serves, at Boston's Symphony Hall. I cannot find a source for that, but the article also fails to mention that they put out a second album, just titled "The Guitar Trio" in 1996, according to Amazon [1] and that fits approximately with the time frame I saw them. They were quite terrific, and DeLucia still was really the driving force behind the ensemble.24.61.45.53 (talk) 16:58, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Influence[edit]

  • "De Lucía is widely considered..." and (subsequent paragraph) - In general, I think it's better to cite specific people's opinions (eg: "according to Billboard's David Sinclair...") rather than just broad comments. It's a bit more neutral.
In all honesty I think for somebody like Paco it doesn't reflect reality by saying that just one person says and it looks overly censored to do so. The Jimi Hendrix article should say "widely considered to be the greatest and most influential guitarist of all time" and the Paco de Lucia article should say "widely considered to be the world's premier flamenco guitarist". Honestly it isn't a fan talking, it is a fact, I could cite hundreds of sources which back up the statement and anybody who's anybody in the guitar world would not batter an eyelid at seeing that statement. I agree with the lead, but in the influence section I think you really need to the reflect how he is perceived across the flamenco world.
Oh, I get it that he's just about the most important flamenco player in living memory, and it's not violating NPOV or anything really to say that, just that I feel its better to say it by reporting other people's quotations directly. The Jazz Times comment below is a good example. Eric Clapton's comment about him being the "titanic figure in the world of flamenco guitar", highlighting his "astounding technique and inventiveness" should go up front to clearly demonstrate just how critically acclaimed this guy is. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 09:21, 21 June 2013 (UTC)
  • This Jazz Times source has quite a nice quote "Most flamenco fans can trace the music's history to either Before Paco or After Paco". I wonder if we can use that somewhere?

Nice quote, I'll add that.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 21:25, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Images[edit]

No copyright problems, though I do have one query about File:Paco de Lucía 4.jpg which seems to have been reused in this source without proper attribution.

Well, that's not an article issue.. Many websites steal images and text and don't attribute them..♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 21:37, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Links[edit]

This source returns a 403 error.

Which citation number is it I can't locate it?♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 21:40, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

adding tunisia concert[edit]

Hi everyone,

I don't know how to add an information so please can someone add it:

at the end of the article it is said that paco de lucia is going to turkey and morocco.

Well he's also attending the International Festival of Carthage, Tunisia. He will give a concert on the 31 july 2013.

Here are some sources (in french):

Date of death[edit]

So far, we don't seem to have confirmation of the date of death - the blog (improperly) used as a citation is dated Feb 26th, and says he died 'last night', which is ambiguous. [3] The BBC, which I have cited, doesn't give a date. [4]. AndyTheGrump (talk) 13:11, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

I see that Reuters reports "died on Wednesday", which would make the 26th correct. [5] It might be worthwhile to check this against later sources, as they become available though - early reports often seem to get death dates wrong. AndyTheGrump (talk) 13:18, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

CNN states died late Tuesday. WWGB (talk) 13:25, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, they say "Tuesday, Mexico time". Would that be Wednesday, European time, so Reuters and others may have misunderstood? Iselilja (talk) 13:28, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
The Guardian now has an obituary which says 25th. [6]. AndyTheGrump (talk) 21:47, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
The Reuters report linked above has now been amended to say "died suddenly of a heart attack on Tuesday evening in Mexico". On the other hand, the NYT says "died on Wednesday". [7] AndyTheGrump (talk) 21:55, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

De Lucía[edit]

De Lucía is not his surname, so we cannot use it as such: "De Lucía is, De Lucía was, De Lucía played" etc. All these seem to be wrongly used. --Why should I have a User Name? (talk) 10:13, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

It would be more legitimate than using Paco or his real surname Sánchez. De Lucía is effectively his surname. Gary Glitter you'd say Glitter went to Vietnam wouldn't you?♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:59, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

I would always say Paco de Lucía but I know Wikipedia is not about one′s personal preferences. --Why should I have a User Name? (talk) 11:06, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
(e/c) It had occurred to me as well - but I think that both Gary Glitter and Paco de Lucia ("de Lucia" deriving from his mother's name) are constructed as names with a forename and surname. They both contrast, for example, with Manitas de Plata ("Little hands of silver"), which has a specific meaning rather than being forename and surname - it would be inappropriate to refer to him as "de Plata". Ghmyrtle (talk) 11:10, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
What do you suggest then? I refer to him as Paco (or the maestro), but according to MOS guidelines we shouldn't use the first name. It would also be inappropriate to keep using his full name or his original surname which few would recognize.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:21, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
This says "Paco", and this uses "Paco de Lucia" (or "he"). Both this and this say "de Lucia" - which is probably what we should do. Ghmyrtle (talk) 12:27, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 3 March 2014[edit]

The mother of Paco de Lucía was born in Castro Marim, a locality south east of Portugal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castro_Marim_Municipality

Topics to be enhanced![edit]

Example of articles with strong correlation with Paco's.

I am exposing a metric for the importance of albums, styles and partners. The massive visitation of Paco de Lucía's article have strong correlated audience in another articles. The traffic statistics behaviour of the 2014-02-26 event — at the Paco's dead day, Paco's page jumps from average ~300/day to ~79000 (260x) — can be used as a "metric" of the importance (in the general point of view of the audience):

Comparing with citations of artits names at the article's text (at same date): Camarón de la Isla (8 citations, under-cited cmp Coryell); Tomatito (0 citations, under-cited); Al Di Meola (12 citations); John McLaughlin (10 citations, over-cited cmp Meola); Larry Coryell (6 citations); Javier Limón (1 citations, under-cited cmp Coryell); Paco de Lucía Sextet (4 citations, under-cited); Pepe de Lucía (4); Ramón de Algeciras (1, under-cited).

Musics:

Albuns:

Styles:

  • New Flamenco: ~70/day average, jumps to ~450 (6x).
  • Flamenco: ~1000/day average, jumps to ~1500 (2x).

Some cited bands and artists like Pata Negra, Julio_Iglesias or Erick Clapton have no correlation (0x); Chick Corea low/diffused correlation (~2x).

Conclusion
Despite the low visitation in some articles, where the error is greater, as well as the pages with more irregular events, the correlation was significative. (another event-correlations can be found reinforcing this one). The article must enhance some of the "strong correlated subjects", as New Flamenco, Al Di Meola, Camarón de la Isla, or Entre dos aguas; than "weakly correlated subjects".

--Krauss (talk) 21:37, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Proper spelling for the artist's name[edit]

I speak both Spanish and Portuguese and I'm familiar with naming standards for the Iberian peninsula. What is the point of using "Francisco Gustavo Sánchez Gomes"? It just sounds like a weird hybridization. The Spanish version of the article uses "Francisco Gustavo Sánchez Gómez". Was the artist actually born under the name "Francisco Gustavo Sánchez Gomes" or "Francisco Gustavo Sánchez Gómez"? He was born in Andalucía so I assume they used the second rather than the first.

Would we need evidence from his birth certificate? Which version, if any, did he typically use himself? Martinevans123 (talk) 11:51, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
I speak Spanish as well and I know Gomes is the Portuguese spelling of the name Gómez. There is nothing weird since Paco and Pepe's mother was Portuguese. If she changed the spelling of her surname to the Spanish equivalent (i.e. Gómez), that would be something else, however there is no indication of that. In Spanish language naming customs, a person has two surnames -- paternal and maternal. If one of the names isn't Spanish that doesn't mean it automatically gets transcribed into Castilian. Look at singer/actor Bertín Osborne (né Norberto Juan Ortiz Osborne); obviously his maternal surname is not Spanish, but that doesn't render it as unacceptable.

All sounds perfectly correct, but I'd suggest we need a WP:RS source if at all possible. Martinevans123 (talk) 14:10, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, his birth certificate was certainly showing what his actual name was (Sánchez Gómez or Sánchez Gomes). Either way, the naming in the English and the Spanish versions of this article do not match.

No mention of the Gustavo in any of these? So exactly what was his birth certificate certainly showing? Martinevans123 (talk) 08:44, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Guitarist vs composer[edit]

I see the page's new OWNer User:Rms125a@hotmail.com thinks that Paco was first and foremost a composer which is ridiculous. He was and always will be a flamenco guitarist who happened to compose some of his own songs. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:39, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Actually I don't think anything about Paco de Lucía's music. He happens to be on my watchlist fot another reason, hence I noticed your unsourced edits. Sorry if I ruffled your feathers that much, Let it go, dude. Quis separabit? 15:43, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

He's attracted a lot of new attention since his death like a lot of people do. I can't understand the thinking behind placing composer first. It's sort of like saying Jimi Hendrix was an American composer, producer and guitarist.♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:45, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
