Gypsy guitarists are usually not household names. Gonzalo Bergara is one of the most accomplished gypsy guitarists practicing today. Now he has travelled in a different direction with his newest release Zalo’s Blues.
His new album is his first foray into not only an electric sound but an exploration of the blues. Backed by bassist Mariano D’Andre and drummer Maximilliano Bergara; he explores a number of blues forms including swing, shuffles, and rock/blues fusion. Through it all Bergara demonstrates why is one of the best guitarists you may not have heard.
Zalo’s Blues is an interesting album by an artist exploring a different art form. If you’re interested in something a little different, then this may be an album for you.
