Notes & Reviews:
Who doesn't want a warm, Hispanic breeze smack in the middle of winter?! That is what this new release offers from the Montreal Guitare Trio on Danzas from the Analekta label. Made up of three veteran guitarists, MG3 returns to their first love and, for the first time in their career, offer an album devoted to great classics of Spanish music. Despite their studies in classical music, Sebastien Dufour, Marc Morin and Glen Levesque have built their career around world music and movie music, blending genres and styles with great dexterity. For their seventh album, the three bandmates decided to revisit the Spanish repertoire so dear to them, through performances overflowing with that raw energy, that scorching passion so characteristic of flamenco.
