Ray Benson’s new Solo CD titled “A Little Piece” is now available thru iTunes for download!  The CD features a track that showcases Mark & Rick Del Castillo’s guitar playing!!  Click the link above to go to iTunes and download it!  Here’s what Ray said about working with Mark & Rick to American Songwriter Magazine:

American Songwriter: “Who are those guys on “Heartache and Pain?”  I never heard guitar (like that) – it’s not quite flamenco.”

Ray Benson: “Oh yeah, they’re called the Del Castillo Brothers. It’s flamenco rock. It’s just these two guys, they’re in town. I produced a record of them and Willie Nelson doing “I Never Cared For You.”  I had written a song that was very angry, flamenco, and I just started playing it. I play the intro lick you know and I could’ve played, but I went, no man, they’re good friends of mine and this is just right up their alley. Yeah, Mark and Rick, the Del Castillo Brothers, they have a band called Del Castillo and that’s what they do.”

Here’s what Associate Editor Matt Blackett had to say in his September 16th online blog about Del Castillo:

“I wasn’t aware of these guys prior to Ellnora, but a shuttle ride to the venue where we discovered our mutual love of Jason Becker forged an instant bond. Watching brothers Rick and Mark del Castillo take the stage and throw down dazzling nylon-string runs, in unison and in harmony, made me a big fan. Think of them as Los Hermanos Allmans, playing infectious Latin rhythms with mind-boggling solos. They whipped the crowd into a frenzy.

Del Castillo sent “Las Seis Cuerdas de Tony Montuno” off to be tested for radio and the results are very promising!  Anything over 7 out of 10 stars is considered “Radio Ready”  and reviewers gave the song a 7.6/10 rating!

Here are just a couple of things fans are saying about the song:

“The opening had instruments that were very upbeat and fun. Made me want to start dancing from the start. Has a wonderful rhythm to it that would make anyone want to dance around. The instruments are smooth and consistent with their harmonies. Very talented artists playing this piece. Could see this being used for dancing, commercials, or anything that would need a highly upbeat, fun song to keep people entertained. From start to finish you want to keep moving. Its very fun and fresh.”

“The mood of this song is very exciting and makes me want to dance. I love the latin taste to this song. I love latin music a lot and I really hope to hear this song around! Definitely would consider to buy this song! It just sounds really cool! I give this a big 10 ! Instrumental balance sounds great and this artist has huge talent!”

“This song has a good energetic beat that is perfect to dance to. There is also a romantic quality to the melody. It is very sensual and would be perfect to dance a flamenco or tango to. The guitarist is very skilled and the production sounds very professional. The sound quality is good. The song is a good length. I could see this being played on World Beat stations with a lot of success.”
