The New York Times wrote about his performance: “…his mastery was evident without ever deviating from an approach that places musical values above mere display.” In 2005, Russell won a Grammy award for his CD Aire Latino, one of only six guitarists ever to win in the category of best instrumental soloist in classical music.
