All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Lara & Reyes, Strunz & Farah, Acoustic Alchemy. No offense to nouveau flamenco pioneer Ottmar Liebert, but for some reason, no matter how engaging an acoustic guitarist can be working solo, there's a special magic that happens when two brilliant players mix attitudes, melodies, rhythms, and sensuality. Especially when it comes to the kind of magical flamenco-flavored material favored by the Washington, D.C.-based duo of Lawson Rollins and Dan Young.

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Lara & Reyes, Strunz & Farah, Acoustic Alchemy. No offense to nouveau flamenco pioneer Ottmar Liebert, but for some reason, no matter how engaging an acoustic guitarist can be working solo, there's a special magic that happens when two brilliant players mix attitudes, melodies, rhythms, and sensuality. Especially when it comes to the kind of magical flamenco-flavored material favored by the Washington, D.C.-based duo of Lawson Rollins and Dan Young. The vibrant, rolling grooves, colorful percussion, and snappy strings of the opening title cut -- combined with the graceful, swaying breezes of "Mediterranean Romance" -- will provide a familiar flamenco touch for the listener. But Young & Rollins don't call their project Mosaic just because it's a pretty word that sounds exotic. They really weave a lot of different textures together, including salsa, Latin jazz, blues, reggae, bossa nova, and classical styles. As engaging as the tunes and the bright productions are, those who listen closely are bound to find themselves intoxicated by the intricate weavings of the two guitars around the ever-present rhythms of percussionist Alfredo Mojica. His tribal booms and sizzling pitter-patter behind the brisk guitar lines of "Fuego Gitano" are a highlight on a disc that is uniformly engaging and brilliant.
