AllMusic Review by

Guitar virtuoso Esteban is nothing if not a marketing genius. Not only has he repeatedly brought his DIY indie-label productions into the Billboard album charts through direct marketing via TV commercials, with FLAME, FLAMENCO, AND ROMANCE he's tied it into a video. The video version of this album offers you the chance to see and hear a full concert from the Segovia-taught guitar wizard who's successfully wedded traditional flamenco guitar style with pop tunes. The two-disc audio companion to the video concentrates on the sonic experience. Either way, fans of this six-string phenomenon will undoubtedly be eager to gobble up this piece of the Esteban legacy, wherein his rapid guitar runs are appropriately alternated with richly evocative, emotive passages where his talent for lyrical romanticism is clearly felt.
