'I concur with the Editorial Review and that by "Gypsy Guitars". Anyone who takes acoustic guitar seriously simply cannot be without this album. Nothing resembling the music on it is available anywhere else. After years of studying every serious form of guitar to the point of mastery that allows it actually to be performed professionally on the highest level, Jorge Strunz has created a marvelous new genre. It is not "classical" guitar, although the expert compositional techniques that gave birth to it make use of lessons learned from the giants of the baroque, classical, and romantic periods. It is not flamenco, although it expresses great passion, energy, and gypsy-like abandon. It is not "Latin Jazz" or any other kind of jazz. It is a new genre, but one that requires no period of adjustment, no learning to appreciate; its beauty and charm are immediately accessible. In fact, it may be several new genres! The recording quality and performance technique meet the exacting standards of perfection that we have learned to expect from Jorge Strunz's previous albums; that is merely the launch point. Nor is it just a matter of breathtaking scale velocity with unexcelled articulation, one of the many facets of musical variation, which are well balanced with slow sections of lyrical legato. There are moments of sinuous modulation, as in "Velvet Midnight", where both scale and rhythm evolve in new ways. There are irresistible pulses that invite dancers to participate, as in "La Finca". In short, every piece features its own special jewels, and the collection establishes a new stratum in the pantheon of guitar apotheoses.
