    Have not heard the dvd-a disc, but have heard him play. He's an amazing flamenco guitarist.

    I was rather disappointed in this discs content. I love acoustic guitar and there is way too much percussion on this disc. If you are looking for a disc full of more traditional guitar music, this is not it.

    I don't think I was disappointed like Craig, but he makes a point. I really like Ottmar Liebert, but it isn't anything like that. I have heard good things about Ziroq and have thought about getting it too. Since there are not many acoustic choices out there for DVD-A, I think you may enjoy Peppino. The discs from AIX have a lot of great extras and are recorded very well.

    Anthony,

    I have not heard the Ziroq disc and I do not know of any other DVD-A with this type of music.

    I totally dig this one. Yes, there is a lot of percussion. Well, that sort of comes with having a percussion player on the album. The guitar player is very, very good.

    Marc, Totally agree on this awesome disc. I'm patiently waiting for the upcoming AIX Dorian Michael: Acoustic Blues which should be excellent as well. You might also try the afore mentioned Ziroq which is an amazing sounding disc as well.

    I appreciate the positive comments posted on AIX's releases and especially the Peppino D'Agostino and Juan van Emmerloot guitar and percussion project. I thought I would add a couple of comments to this thread.

    Peppino was recommended to me by my good friend Dorian Michael (also a guitar player...his title with guests Laurence Juber and Albert Lee will be done by CES...I hope). He plays with a particularly percussive style, lots of tapping and aggressive picking which works really well with the percussion. As a guitarist myself, I find his playing extremely expressive and engaging...this is my assistant's favorite AIX project. His sensitivity and musicianship are first rate. The sound of his guitar in this recording is also pretty astounding.

    I just purchased the DVD-A disc after it was recommended to me. I have a CD called Guitar FingerStyle 2 which I love. I was looking for more CD's just like it. Someone recommended Peppino and I really like it. The DTS, DD and DVD-A tracks are excellent. I'd love some more recommendations along the same lines.

    Another great DVD-A title to check out is Steve Stevens: Flamenco A Go-Go from DTS Entertainment.
