Crazy for Coco's Riffs! 

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. He’s occasionally a fluid player (like Clapton), but he’s at his best when there’s some fire to his riffing. His tattered voice shows that he learned a thing or two by gigging with Albert Collins for years.
