Guitar Masters Of Brazil

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Cherry Red's Él imprint is home to some of the most diverse reissues and compilations. This single-disc collection is a case in point, focusing as it does on liberal samplings from some of Brazil's most important guitar stylists. The most obvious and popular guitar giants from Brazil are Luiz Bonfá and Baden Powell; each man was a master technician and brilliant composer.

The six pieces by Bonfa include "Marajo" and "Island of Trinidade," while "Insônia," "Fluido de Saudade," and "Prelúdio ao Coração" are among the nine whopping tracks ...

João Gilberto and Carlos Barbosa-Lima have one each, while Laurindo Almeida has three, including his gorgeous reading of Ravel's "Pavane Pour une Infante Défunte" Pavane for a Dead Princess. Dilermando Reis also has three, including his signature "Na Baixa do Sapateiro" In the Shoemaker's Hollow, and nylon-string maestro Garoto closes the set with five, including the mysterious "Inspiração." This is not a definitive volume of Brazilian guitar styles, but it is a pleasing one.
