Overview

A pleasant outing by Colombian-born guitarist Juan Carlos Quintero. The music, drawn from a panoply of South American idioms, is driven by Quintero's smooth-toned, well-played acoustic guitars (all the tracks are instrumental). Joining the leader are Otmaro Ruiz and Joe Rotondi on piano, Eddie Resto and Guillermo Guzmán (the co-producer) on bass, Walter Rodriguez on drums, and Lucho Campillo and Enrique Martinez on accordion -- with nearly a dozen Latin percussionists adding layers of rhythmic color. Generally the music stays in one fairly subdued area and is usually in a minor key. The heavier percussion of "Jobim," the fast beat of "Los Musicos," and the deep groove of "El Camino" add variety toward the middle of the program.

I received this CD as a gift and fell in love with every song! I listen to Diana Krall, George Benson, Santana, and now, Juan Carlos Quintero. If you're selective about your music, this is a CD you must have. The songs are romantic, passionate, and memorable. This music stays with you.
