Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The performer, Marco Tamayo, does an excellent job. His recorded technique is flawless, both when using the traditional European style of picking and strumming, and the more Spanish and Caribbean influenced techniques... The recording itself is very well done, and does a nice job of highlighting his technique... highly recommended. Much of the work may be unfamiliar, but none of it will be unapproachable. Each piece is a gem, wonderfully written, performed, and recorded. The album is suitable for background or mood music, but excels when scrutinized and given active attention. Short of buying a ticket for a weekend excursion to Havana, this is certainly one of the most enjoyable ways to explore the musical traditions of Cuba that this Read more reviewer has come across. -- Patrick Gary, musicweb.uk.net

"A fascinating insight into the influences on Cuban guitar music...Marco Tamayo proves himself to be a fine guitarist. His playing is rather understated which seems to assist the mood of the music, with more subtlety than flamboyance, more sensitivity than grit; unaffected rather than pretentious. Tamayo leaves the listener with a real sense of 'a soloist at one' with this repertoire from his homeland... moody, reflective and accessible... No problem with the sound quality here and the release has interesting and informative annotation. An exceedingly well performed release from Naxos." -- Michael Cookson, musicweb.uk.net
