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.
