Darren Curtis Skanson is a brilliant classical guitarist. He approaches his craft with panache and flair. Solamente Romanz is a set of 12 beautiful tracks performed by Skanson on the Spanish guitar with Wayne Templeman on all other strings. Skanson composed seven of the selections. The others are classical mainstays, including a very cool transcription of "Für Elise." Skanson's light touch adds a unique twist to that piece, traditionally a piano solo. He enhances his flawless technique by putting his heart and soul into his performance. This is a great CD, essential for acoustic guitar lovers.
