Like Eric Clapton, California guitarist Coco Montoya
mentored under veteran bluesman John Mayall. On his new solo album, Dirty Deal, Montoya unleashes one mean guitar lick after another. Hes occasionally a fluid player (like Clapton), but hes at his best when theres some fire to his riffing. His tattered voice shows that he learned a thing or two by gigging with Albert Collins for years.
