“Carles is pretty unbelievable. I like him because of his unmistakable feel. This is an album that no one will know, but they should definitely check it out. Carles is very different in that he gets us totally out of America, if that makes any sense.
“He has a flamenco/Latin kind of flavor. He plays with a pick, but he still has a feel that is almost like finger and thumb players. He does it his own way.
“I got a copy of this record from Carles himself, but I discovered him by listening to Paco de Lucia, the flamenco guitarist. Hearing it was like a breath of fresh air – somebody doing something different. It’s bass from another culture, so it takes you somewhere new.”
