All Music Guide:
Californian guitarist/composer Jim Stubblefield is one of the rising stars of the nuevo flamenco movement, joining the passion of traditional flamenco with contemporary elements like South American rhythms and Afro-Cuban jazz. His 1997 debut November introduced his signature blend of worldbeat, new age, jazz, and rock, using electric and acoustic guitar textures for a contemporary feel. Cities of Gold arrived a year later, and 1999 saw the release of Rhythm of the Heart, which also featured the Jim Stubblefield group, the guitarist's touring band since 1995.
