release in 1997 from BLIND PIG RECORDS
"Montoya effectively communicates his style and personality without betraying his roots. He and his music have their own identity." -- Blues Access
With the release of Just Let Go, his third recording on Blind Pig Records, Coco Montoya continues to prove he's one of the most formidable blues and roots rock guitar slingers on the scene.
Just Let Go continues to showcase his steely guitar licks and impassioned vocals. After the success of You'd Think I'd Know Better, Coco asked Grammy Award winning producer, Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan and Santana) to rejoin him in the studio and Jim quickly agreed. Special guests include Ernie and Earl Cate from the Cate Bros and Shaun Murphy, formerly of Little Feat. Just Let Go features inspired versions of songs such as "Fear No Evil" and "Do What You Wanna Do" as well as refreshing originals like "My Side Of The Fence," and "Just Let Go" which are sure to catch the attention of mainstream audiences, media people and fans alike.
