From St. Louis To Seville - Carlos Montoya

From St. Louis To Seville
Carlos Montoya and His Guitar with Rhythm Accompaniment
Produced by Johnnie Camacho
Recorded in Studio A, New York City, November 3, 1958
Recording Engineer: Ed Begley
RCA Victor LSP-1986
1959

Available for online purchase download so I will not be posting a sample, but would agree with Billboard that St. Louis Blues is the standout track. closely followed by Improvisation. Current online downloads do not feature the original cover art. There is no mention, in the jacket notes, of who Montoya's session (New York jazzmen) were.

From Billboard - February 15, 1960: Here's an unusual package, wherein the great flamenco guitarist works with a jazz group on one side and give his unique and expressive interpretations of five pop tunes, best of which is a virtuoso treatment of "St. Louis Blues." Flip spotlights the usual exciting flamenco guitar work on five Latin items. "Zambrilla," "Tarants," etc.
