вЂ?Alma ViejaвЂ™ is the latest CD from guitar virtuoso Russ Hewitt. Replete with his rumba flamenco playing and lightning guitar runs, the album follows HewittвЂ™s 2008 debut вЂ?Bajo el SolвЂ™ which was typified by fierce Latin rhythms and infectious contemporary jazz grooves. It garnered the kind of critical acclaim to suggest this talented player was already on the road to musical stardom.
вЂ?Alma ViejaвЂ™ features some notable guest artists and among them are Grammy award-winning violinist Charlie Bisharat and, perhaps most notably, contemporary jazz saxophonist Michael Lington. In fact itвЂ™s Lington who features on my selection вЂ?Pacific SunriseвЂ™ which is also the first single to be released to radio. With LingtonвЂ™s status in smooth jazz coupled with HewittвЂ™s fine playing the easy grooving вЂ?Pacific SunriseвЂ™ should certainly attract some attention.
