This work is amazing! Maestro Jaime Zavala shows in this work a new classical instrument: the electric guitar! A clean and perfect sound, really a masterwork.

El llamar a Jaime Zavala "Maestro" no me parece. Incluso al mismo Zavala le molesta. Tiene una tÚcnica increÝble, tal vez una de las mas perfectas, puede tocar lo que quiera, pero eso no lo hace maestro. Este disco tiene un gran mÚrito: Zavala no ha alterado ninguna nota, por eso es merecedor de todo mi elogio.
