BUZZ: Guitar virtuoso Michael Anthony Nigro's survey of Argentinean guitar works, most of them never before recorded, covers a wide spectrum of pieces from folk ballads and dances to sophisticated compositions by Piazzolla.



"Overall, this is a most pleasurable program, adequately played."

-Steve Marsh, Classical Guitar Magazine



"It's a pleasant collection of spiky Argentine dance rhythms interspersed with soulful milongas. Nigro has a very big sound, a smooth tone and sure-footed, though very conservative, interpretive instincts."

-Steven Rings, American Record Guide, (Sept/Oct 2005)
