"Noche Flamenca," by the splendidly talented Roger Scannura, is a passionate collection of energetic Latin flamenco tunes. Kicking off with the electrifying "Noche Flamenca," Roger immediately engages his audience with unsuppressed fervor and enthusiasm, all expressed though amazing acoustic guitar leads and rhythms. Very few guitarists can boast the undeniable skill Roger exhibits on this CD. Moreover, beautiful violins on songs like "Burning Bridges" and "El Surco" give this album an added element of traditional and cultural beauty. Moreover, the percussion on "Noche Flamenca" stands out as especially creative and enticing; using traditional Latin percussion instruments and miscellaneous sounds such as hand claps, Roger brews together unforgettable percussion tracks. To top things off, the production of this record is as skilled as its instrumentation. Latin lovers will find it hard to stay still while enjoying the tracks of this dynamic CD!
