"I have purchased many CD's of this type of music and from many different artists (Ottmar Liebert, Jesse Cook, Oscar Lopez, Johannes Linstead, Govi, Armik, Lara and Reyes, Bendetti and Svoboda, etc.) and this one is definitely one of the best!!! If you like this type of music you have got to have this CD!! All of the selections have a unique, original sound, lots of rhythm and excellent latin percussion. You won't be disappointed!!!!"
Music that Moves You

"Listening to this brilliant series of tunes is like taking a long breath of fresh air. It truly touches the soul. I bought the CD on "spec" after hearing a couple of tracks about 5 months ago. Smart move! Over time, it has become the A, number one listening choice for almost everthing I do. There is true beauty and depth in each track. It is well worth the money spent. I'm looking for anything else Luis and the UN band might have recorded. Don't hesitate. you won't be sorry."
As long as you like "light" classical guitar.

"OK, so I like a lot of this genre... Govi, S&F, W&L, Encinas, etc., but this one is great background for relaxing drives. You may find yourself driving a bit too fast for a couple of the tracks though. I call it "light" as it doesn't extract as high a toll on the listener as most new flamenco does...This is another one that I give away to people because I like the way it makes me feel."
