Bob Torrison Retrospective V The Music 6 Carlos Montoya

One summer towards the end of college Bob introduced me to flamenco guitar music. He had discovered Andres Segovia and Carlos Montoya. I became entranced. How could I not have known it was out there. It was probably because I was too busy with rock and roll. Carlos Montoya started out playing classical flamenco and then had the audacity to perform in concert without a dancer. 

But it was great to listen to and I was never going to be a flamenco dancer - I was more into swing and jitter bug. We even went to a concert in a small club. My love affair with this music was torrid but brief.
