Carlos Montoya has a legendary name in flamenco: his uncle Ramon was regarded as the foremost flamenco guitarist of his generation. Yet this namesake was a handicap early in the younger Montoya's career, one which he overcame. Performing "real" Andalusian flamenco on solo guitar, some of these gypsy tunes originated in the regions of Aragon and Linares while others reflect Moorish or even Cuban influence; some take on dance forms like the rumba or tango. Montoya performs passionately and persuasively.

Amazing technique, burning guitar riffs, passionate phrases and runs, heartfelt melodies -these are the features of this great solo classical flamenco guitar album. There is also some very interesting percussive interplay between the strings and the guitar body.
