amazing new music

My dear friend, Miguel Espinoza has recently finished mastering his latest cd. You owe it to yourself to surf out to his myspace page and have a listen:

Miguel is a guitarist extraordinaire. His first flamenco performance was when he was just 9. His music has a lot of flamenco influences, but also a good dose of latin and jazz.

I know once upon a time you could find his cds at various stores around town. Apparently you can download the tracts from his first two cds off several online sites, including itunes and napster. His previous two cds are under the band name Curandero and are well worth searching out.

Go check it out!
