José Luis Montón is one of the great Spanish guitarists of our time. Completely rooted in Flamenco, his great sensitivity and musicality lead him to venture into very particular territories, from the interpretation of classical themes to the flamenco style, as happened recently with the edition of his album Flamenco & Clássica.
