    I have recently become very excited about latin/flamenco type Guitar. Two artists that I enjoy are Jesse Cook and Paco De Lucia. Can anyone suggest any other artists and albums so that I can really immerse myself in this genre?

    Richard, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of The Best of the Gipsy Kings. They do bring a pop-flavor to flamenco, but it is still very enjoyable. Technically, I feel the guitarists in this band are extremely talented. Plus this particular title will give you a good overview of their music. Highly recommended!

    La Catedral by Barrios. I heard it on Musicmatch radio and it almost put me to sleep it was so relaxing.

    Get the cd with Al DiMeola, Paco, and John McLaughlin. It's called Friday Night in San Francisco. You wont be dissapointed.

    The lead guitarist/singer from The Mavricks is Raul Malo. I've seen them once in concert and thought he was as good a guitar player as he is a singer.

    He's got a new album called 'Today' that I've heard a couple of tracks. Heavy Latin sound but I'm not sure if there are any guitar tracks. I've been trying to locate this but haven't been successful yet.

    Edit: Good album but does not feature guitar...

    Try the FIM XRCD of Flamenco Passion by Gino D'Auri. This disc is exceptional even when compared SACD or DVD-A discs. More traditional than Al DiMeola or Gypsy Kings.

    Manolo San Lucar is an excellent guitarist in that genre. I searched the web and found I could order his CDs only from Spain. They arrived in good shape, MasterCard took care of the currency exchange.
    Teye, who frequently plays with Joe Ely's band, is an excellent flamenco guitar player. I believe he has a CD or two of his own, as well.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Assad family - a favorite of Eric Clapton. While not pure flamenco, clearly latin enough and innovative to qualify.
    Sergio and Adair Assad have a fascinating new album on Nonesuch titled Sergio and Adair Assad Play Piazolla. Excellent!
    Try any of Badi Assad's (their sister) works on Chesky. Also, Luiz Bonfa is a legend down there.
    Also, Ana Caram is quite good for native Brazilian guitar pop and traditional.
