Notes & Reviews:

Song of the Torero tells of the passion Bernardos Grandfather has for the guitar. Bernardo loves to visit his Grandfather who lives in a stone house perched on a hilltop near Barcelona. The boy adores hearing stories from his grandfathers childhood, and is mesmerized by his music. One day while strolling through the hills, grandfather reveals an amazing secret. Song of the Torero is an unforgettable story that embraces the extraordinary beauty of the guitar.

Kim Maerkl Does it Again
I own several CD's from Kim Maerkl and she never fails to impress with her storytelling and the fantastic musicians and narrators she features on her label. This CD is another fine example of her talents.
