Just as jazz is dogged by its flaccid imitator "smooth jazz," this record is a glimpse into what might be called "smooth flamenco." Guitarist Obo is actually a fine player, but this set of 16 originals and one Beatles cover ("And I Love Her") sounds like the music you'd hear (and ignore) in a restaurant. Now and then a clarinet, flute, saxophone, or fuzztone guitar breaks up the monotony, but the compositions are intrinsically elementary and dull across the board.
