In 2003 I was pleased to participate in an exciting Latin-flavored CD. The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet asked me provide the program notes for the group's Telarc release LAGQ Latin, their first project for the label. The crossover CD features music from Cuba, Central and South America, Spain and a whole lot more. Composers on the album include Egberto Gismonti, Eduardo Martin, Aron Copland as well as a suite from Bizet's Carmen. Throughout the wide-ranging album one can even find an arrangement of Sting's song Fragile. The album was nominated for the Grammy award in the category "Best Crossover Album." Here are the program notes.
