On Danza Scott Morris furthers his stellar reptutation...a modern day classical
”Recorded in May 2005, Danza features classical guitarist Scott Morris in the studio with noted rock producer Niko Bolas. Morris was masterful on his last solo outing Invocation, and on the ten track 54 minute Danza Morris furthers his stellar reputation performing a challenging five part classical suite by Heitor Villa-Lobos, the three part Grand Sonata In A Major by Niccolò Paganini and a pair classical guitar arrangements by Jorge Morel including El Condor Pasa. Currently the director of guitar studies at California State University in Dominguez Hills, Morris waxes on the significance of these timeless guitar treasures in the lengthy Danza liner notes. Featuring a top performance by Morris on his Thomas Humphrey Millennium and Jack Sanders (19th c. guitar), Danza is a worthy addition to his repertoire. Unobtrusive production by Bolas and Erich Gobel allows Morris to clearly focus on his expressive guitar methodology. On Danza Scott Morris furthers his stellar reptutation...a modern day classical guitar masterpiece" - 20th Century Guitar Magazine
