Ramón Montoya


Ramón Montoya – Minera (from Grandes Figures Du Flamenco 1936)

Amazing Flamenco musician that former AMM member and Erstwhile records champ Keith Rowe claims greatest guitar player ever. A bit confusing from someone that plays them with radios and fans, but none the less interesting. Montoya was responsble for fathering the solo Flamenco guitar concerts non-accompanied by song and dance, and is one of the most important musicians of the genre. His shit is so bananas it sounds like there’s overdubs at times. I was reminded of this CD by the Spanish lady that plays guitar, violin, tap shoes and sings all at once in the downtown EL stations here in Chicago. She’s obviously influenced by Ramón goin solo.
