 A stunning blend of technique and musicianship!

Wow! This is as uplifting and exciting an album as I have heard for a very long time, speaking both as a lifelong music lover and as a guitarist!

Firstly on the music - Juan Martin has taken the intense passion, irresistable rhythms and unmistakable melodies of the flamenco repertoire, and placed his unique interpretation upon it. To my ear, this album captures the best of traditional flamenco spontaneously and infectiously, and yet offers a sound less alien to the contemporary listener.

As a guitarist, I find Juan Martin's powerful technique and tremendous knowledge of his instrument exhilarating. Any guitarist, indeed any musician will understand the feeling of listening to a master of the form in full flight - the moment when your mouth drops open, and then spreads into an involuntary grin as you wonder how on earth such phrasing and speed are possible. Don't get me wrong - I'm certainly not interested in technique for its' own sake, but where it goes hand in hand with musicianship of this calibre it simply blows me away.

Anyway, I can't recommend this CD highly enough - it features musicians in tremendous form, playing music they love and understand. Superb!
