February, 2009 CD review: Amoroso--Esteban Bello, Amoroso. The soundtrack to your next Latin-themed romance, Amoroso never strays from the subject of love. Even when it seems to, such as in the brooding "Lagrimas Negras," Bello's emotional singing and passionate classical guitar playing fill the gap. Dripping with sensuality, this collection of romantic boleros speaks a universal language. (self-released)” - Nate Seltenrich
