What happens when you take producer/composer/guitarist Jesse Cook's Spanish guitar, genius Algerian multi-instrumentalist Fethi Nadjem, add in some 808 trap beats, and let them off leash? Jesse Cook's 11th studio album, "Libre". 'We wrote and recorded Libre during the pandemic when, like most people, we were longing for freedom. My music was my escape from the four walls that surrounded me, and the storm that was swirling outside.' A career spanning 25 years has brought Jesse Cook a coveted Acoustic Guitar Magazine 'Player's Choice Silver Award', 11 Juno nominations (he won for 2001"s 'Free Fall'), a Gemini Award and, most impressively, 10 platinum and gold studio albums. He has sold out concert halls the world over, and produced 5 PBS TV specials and 5 live CD's. Jesse Cook has blazed an incredible trail. Along with being a global-guitar virtuoso, he's honed his skills as a composer, producer, arranger, performer and, more recently, filmmaker and cultural ambassador. With a multitude of TV appearances in both Canada and the US under his belt, an international audience soon came calling. In Poland, his 2004 live album "Montreal" took the country by storm. In India, he gained fame after one of his songs was plagiarized for a major Bollywood movie. In Iraq, his instrumentals score the nightly news. Elsewhere, they've accompanied gymnasts and skaters at the Olympics. Cook likes to joke that his music "has had a way more interesting life" than he's had. But lately, that international appeal ' reflected in a compositional style that mixes flamenco with everything from classical and jazz to Zydeco, blues and Brazilian samba ' has become something he takes more seriously. "If music can come from around the world and interconnect so beautifully to create this beautiful tapestry, maybe there's something that music can teach us."

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
