The flamenco-tinged rock sound of Mexican acoustic guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela, John Floridis’s first guests this week, melds Tomatito with Metallica and Carlos Santana with Pink Floyd.  Gabriela Quintera tells John about the making of their recent album, Mettavolution. Next, saxophone virtuoso Loren Stillman stops by to chat about the life of an in-demand “A-list" player in New York City’s jazz scene.

(Broadcast: Musician's Spotlight,  10/8/19. Listen on the radio Tuesdays, 7 p.m., or via podcast.)

John Floridis, the host and producer of Musician's Spotlight, has been with Montana Public Radio since 1997. He has interviewed over 200 musicians during that time. He is also an independent recording and performing artist in his own right and a former registered music therapist.
