Larry Coryell - Boléro (1981)

Been a bit busy this month, but here's a quickie. Those who enjoyed Coryell's Stravinsky albums (one example way back here) should like this. Here's his take on Ravel's Boléro and a couple of more explicitly Spanish tunes. Very short album this, and it has been on CD, paired with his album of Rimsky-Korsakov's  Scheherazade (which I also own).

Not to be confused with another album Larry made entitled Boléro in 1984.
