Spanish Blood mixes the very best of latin songs from the spirited inspiring Malaguena to the heartwrenching Concertio de Aranjuez. Played on solo guitar this is the CD for everyone who wants the best of it all!

Flamenco
The way Spanish Flamenco is supposed to be! Outstanding guitar playing; very much worth the price.

Adam Rosen

Classical Guitar at its Finest
This album has me longing for Andalucia. The artist is exceptionally gifted at his craft, capable of playing at a frantic - yet entirely controlled - pace, and then instananeously downshifting gears. Beautifully crisp, Cruz's songs come to life and are hauntingly emotive despite the use of only a single instrument. That no other instruments or voices are present though only places even greater focus (and pressure) on the performance, with the effect of acutely heightening any misstep or shortcoming. Not to worry though - there are none.

Awesome!
I love this CD. I will be using it during our wedding reception dinner and I can literally let the whole thing play. I am so happy I found it!!
