All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Part of the new flamenco movement along with Ottmar Liebert and Strunz & Farah, the guitar duo of Dan Young and Lawson Rollins plays the particular Spanish style with a contemporary jazz and new age attitude. While acknowledging the classical tradition carried on by such luminaries as Paco de Lucia, Young & Rollins also showcase their formidable guitar technique against the occasional funky, finger-slap bassline. Taken as a whole, the combination creates an interesting rub of traditions -- funk meets flamenco.

Taken as a whole, the combination creates an interesting rub of traditions -- funk meets flamenco. Although Sevilla is full of real grit and passion for Spanish music, the other, more contemporary tradition in the smooth genre of eschewing solos in favor of endlessly repeated melodic themes renders these tracks somewhat anonymous. That said, Young & Rollins do seem to have an excitement for performing that comes through in many of the well-executed arrangements that build the tension to more than a few hot conclusions.

    Sevilla

    This CD is packed with incredible guitar playing, beautiful melodies, and distinctive tunes, one right after another. Above all, just like their first CD, Salsa Flamenca, Young & Rollins showcase their mastery as composers. The guitar fireworks are always to be expected in this genre, but original and distinctive compositions are hard to come by. Young & Rollins blend their virtuosity into music of the highest caliber.

    This is one of the best CDs I've bought recently. Each tune shines with its own distinct melody and vibe. Young & Rollins are obviously skilled guitarists, but their composition skills really set them apart from the rest. The compositions are ''catchy'', yet sophisticated, while the guitar playing is superb, but never overly flashy. I would highly recommend this CD to anyone who is into the ''world music'' sound.
