It’s difficult to say more about the Carlos Odria Trio’s new album, “El Rio,” other than that it’s gorgeous: Stunningly, jaw-droppingly, trying-not-to-weep-at-work beautiful. Guitarist Odria and his cohorts...serve up a tapestry of Spanish music inflected with jazz that’s captivating from beginning to end...

Victor D. Infante

El Rio...this one of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful pieces of work in recent memory, each note flowing with seeming ease into an exquisite tapestry. The all-instrumental album catches the listener in a riptide of jazz and Spanish guitar, carrying them away to a musical place that’s achingly beautiful.
