Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Spanish guitar maestro Roni Benise has earned fans aplenty through his glitzy stage show, which has been broadcast on PBS. Nights of Fire! presents flamenco alongside Cuban and Brazilian music that's exuberantly performed by Benise's ensemble; on stage they're abetted by a fleet of sleek-bodied dancers. The Los Angeles-based phenomenon once made his living busking for change, but that was a long time ago. The Benise extravaganza shares with Celtic Woman and Cirque de Soleil an exotic theme rendered for mass entertainment, and with palpable excitement on the album and the companion DVD, Roni Benise succeeds as both showman and ...

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
The soundtrack to a filmed stage performance by Spanish guitarist Roni Benise and choreographer Alex Magno the full performance is available on DVD and was broadcast on PBS in 2005, Nights of Fire! presents itself as a history of Spanish music that moves from traditional Castilian flamenco through the various African-influenced styles of Latin America. Benise is an excellent flamenco guitarist, and those tracks that showcase that skill come off best.

    a reviewer

    This music is so different than anything that I have ever heard. Benise is a very talented artist and has a perfect perspective of what spanish guitar should sound like. I would highly recomend this to anyone who loves to hear different and beautiful music. Try this title even if spanish guitar isn't really your thing because I tried it and loved it!

    Stage was on Fire

    After seeing the PBS special "Nights of Fire" I was hooked and had to see this brilliant artist live. This is a must have CD as well as the rest of his collection, (Romance and Passion, Live 2 set CD, Spanish Nights and more)

    Phenomenal!

    Don't let the term Spanish guitar prevent you from trying Benise's music. It is like nothing else I've listened to. I would consider myself a rock fan but I have fallen in love with this music! As Ron says it is his dream and this music is an escape. Even my 16 year old son who is a fan of heavy metal is amazed by Benise.You can't go wrong trying this CD.

    Love it!

    This is one of the few cds I can never get tired of. The music is so unique and lovely it's impossible not to enjoy it. Every song has a different feeling and story to go with it. Roni Benise is a wonderful guitarist and can't forget about his extremely talented band. They bring their music to life and celebrate Music, Love and Life. Their shows are like one big celebration and a great experience to attend. Once again, their music has it's own sound and through their hard work it has definently payed off. I definently recommend this cd to anyone of all ages.

    A musical feast for your ears

    Are you an adventurer? You don't have to leave your living room to take a trip around the world, simply load Benise's Nights of Fire CD into your stereo system, sit back, close your eyes and let Benise do the rest of the work as he weaves his magic on the guitar. Each song is distinctly set for your travelling musical journey as Benise takes you to Spain, Cuba, Africa, and Brazil just to name a few. What is the ultimate musical trip? Seeing and hearing him live and in concert, if you can't see him live, get the concert DVD and get ready to take a visual and audible journey unlike you've ever experienced before.

    PASSION & ROMANCE COME ALIVE THRU BENISE

    For those who have never experienced the passion and romance of Spanish Guitar, this CD will definitely captivate and seduce you. Very rarely is an artist able to captivate an audience. Benise is such an artist. Every song can be felt with the heart. This CD is an absolute must for those who love Spanish guitar. I have heard various however this CD took my breath away. Roni Benise has definitely made a name for himself. It is an honor and privilege for me to recommend this CD. His other CD's are definitely ones to check out. Look out world! Benise has arrived.
