Dan's debut CD,“In the Midnight Hours,” received rave reviews in music publications, and has been excitedly lauded by his fans. 20th Century Guitar Magazine hailed him a “Spanish guitar master” while Black Label Reviews declared him “the Carlos Santana for the next generation.” He was even nominated for Instrumental Artist of the Year at the Los Angeles Music Awards.
The 2008 CD from Spanish guitar master Dan Sistos is a work of guitar art to be appreciated by Flamenco
and World Beat music fans. Recorded in L.A., In The Midnight Hours features Sistos superbly recorded in
the studio backed up by a full band including bass, drums, piano with several cuts adding in a full string
section. While most of the cuts are deep in the modern Flamenco tradition, several others with orchestral
backing veer off into a lush, atmospheric, instrumental groove blending orchestral/classical guitar based
New Age. In addition to Dan’s skillful guitar playing and composing, In The Midnight Hours benefits from the
inventive string and horn arrangements of Arturo Solar.
