Heres an unusual package, From St. Louis to Seville, wherein Carlos Montoya, the great flamenco guitarist played for the first time on record with a jazz rhythm accompaniment, giving his unique and expressive interpretation of five pop tunes, best of which is a virtuoso treatment of St. Louis Blues. The rest of the album spotlights the exciting flamenco guitar work on three Montoya originals, and a couple of Spanish popular gypsy songs.

The second album on this set was recorded live at the historic Town Hall concert that Montoya offered in February 1962. The music he performed is mostly his own transcriptions or original flamenco compositions, except the last solo guitar version of, again, St. Louis Blues, one of his great favorites which he favored playing play after a pure all-flamenco concert.
