1st Review for Rafael's Debut Album "GOLDEN"

FIRST ALBUM REVIEW BY ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST RENOWNED GUITAR MASTERS AND SONG STORY TELLERS: WOODY MANN
 
"Just listened to the new recording "Golden"...A great set of originals from guitarist/singer,songwriter Rafael Espinoza. Beautiful soulful playing and singing that cover a wide range of moods and musical influences. From the swinging blues title track "It's All Gravy Baby" to the love ballad "Your Eyes Told Me", Rafael's originality and honesty come through as does his sheer enjoyment of the music. The trio arrangements create just the right groove for each tune - great playing. And...they all sound like they are having some fun!" - Woody Mann
