Acoustic Guitar

Acoustic Masters

Live In France

Rubyworks Records out now

This album presented me a lesson in what can be done with this wonderful instrument. This recording is a pulsating, frenetic mixture of driven acoustic guitar numbers performed before incredibly enthusiastic french audiences. It’s Latin and Spanish influences have an intensity that is almost too much, such is the speed at which these two players perform.

On 12th and 13th August, the duo, Mexicans Rodrigo Sanchez (Lead) and Gabriela Quintero (Rhythm) are set to play two nights at no less a venue than the Hollywood Bowl with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, such is a testament to their pulling power.

If you need to hear exactly what you can do with sixteen fingers, four thumbs and two acoustic guitars, get hold of this album now. For shear playing ability, I would pick any one of the eleven tracks on this album to showcase the talents of the duo but check out Tamacun as a perfect example of the heights to which two masters have ascended.
