“CD review by Chuck Graham www.tucsonstage.com RUMBO NUEVO “Solo Dos” I finally caught up to Rumbo Nuevo the other night, sitting in the bar at Sullivan’s Restaurant, not knowing the musicians but quickly being captivated by the clarity of their playing – “their” being Troy Gray and Todd Mellor. These two nylon string guitarists play with remarkable balance and an uncanny anticipation of each other’s moves. Now I have a copy of their latest CD, “Solo Dos,” an atmospheric collection of 12 original songs they describe as “Nuevo Flamenco and Spanish guitar.” Those aren’t two separate styles. Gray and Mellor blend them into their own musical sangria that could be described as proper Spanish guitar with an edge, or maybe the more muscular Nuevo Flamenco with a poet’s sensitivity. The effect is quite sensual. Each lyrical passage swirls around focused beats that maintain a center for their long passages of lyrical counterpoint. All the tracks”
Ask Troy Gray anything...
Q: Where are you playing in July 2014? Hopefully Tucson. Details? Thanks.
A: I'm so sorry Patsy. I didn't even see your question here! :( In July I performed mostly at the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain and El Conquistador Resort in Oro, Valley, AZ. Hoping to expand my venues out of town after the release my new CD soon! :)
