The gypsies in Spain were the first to develop the Spanish guitar sound, flamenco and many Latin music motifs. Johannes Linstead has always had a bit of the wandering gypsy spirit.
His new cd, Tales of the Gypsy, explores the many nuances of the Spanish guitar from the traditional to the contemporary, from fiery and passionate to soulful and swinging, sometimes lightning-fast and always beautifully melodic. Linstead demonstrates on Tales of a Gypsy why he is recognized internationally as one of the most popular and best-selling guitarists and composers in the world-fusion field. Once again he melds far-ranging influences and global styles into his own signature sound.
