Overview

Brazilian guitarist Carlos Barbosa-Lima injects his personalized style into various musical elements. The sounds of Brazil and the Latin genre are performed on this fine 2003 release. Simply put, Barbosa-Lima is a masterful acoustic guitarist who tends to speak softly via his instrument of choice. Throughout these 16 pieces, the artist garners sympathetic support from bassist John Benitez, percussionist Edgardo Aponte, and cuattro (Puerto Rican stringed instrument) performer Gustavo Colina. The guitarist's deft plucking and classically oriented articulations speak volumes here. It's all about finesse, multi-hued textures, and rhythmically charged chord progressions, whether performing within bossa nova-style frameworks or rendering a simpatico version of the Webber/Rose classic "Don't Cry for Me Argentina." Barbosa-Lima is a stylist who doesn't overwhelm with brazen pyrotechnics or rapid-fire bravado. He simply gets the job done by way of his finely honed technical veracity and acute comprehension of the material at hand. Hence, Barbosa-Lima's methodology broadcasts a quiet fire brimming with sentiment and emotive qualities.
