Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2006-01-09 
The subtitle is “South American Music for the Spanish Guitar,” and that about sums it up. It’s instrumental music, with solid guitar, plus percussion, and bass. His playing isn’t extraordinary, but it’s listenable, playable, and enjoyable. Good “lingering over a dinner party” music. This CD was recorded at his home, so the acoustics could be better. I like the tracks with percussion & bass better than the solo tracks where it sometimes seems like he looses the beat.

1. A good intro to the music – light, midtempo, lyrical.
2. Lyrical, midtempo folk song.
3. A classical sound, downtempo & a bit heavy.
*4. Relaxed & lightly jazzy w/nice percussion accents.
5. Solo guitar, midtempo w/a nice, melodic quality.
6. Slow w/a kind of tripping, halting melody.
*7. Midtempo w/a nice sort of late night in a café feel.
8. Slow, stately, old-fashioned sound.
9. Slow but w/a feeling of lightness.
*10. Bright, mid/uptempo w/a nicely moving melody.
11. A lazy sort of cha-cha w/claps. Kinda nice.
12. Slow. A little ponderous.
13. You’ll know this one. A mid/uptempo classic.
14. Another classic. Mid/uptempo w/a bit flair.
*15. Fairly solid samba w/nice touch of percussion.
16. Slow take on a Baden Powell tune. Sad & romantic.
