Navidad

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
The acoustic string magic of Sergio Lara and Joe Reyes makes this Christmas collection a perfect party disc. The crisp arrangements of Lara's mandolin and Reyes's guitar sparkle with enough texture to stand out from the hubbub of a holiday gathering without creating a mush of sound. The duo is adept at a number of styles -- flamenco, jazz, folk, classical, swing -- and with Lara's mandolin, some pieces pick up a bluegrass tinge. "Feliz Navidad" rolls sweetly along, while "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" smolders over Reyes's flamenco guitar riff. Lara's mandolin carries the melodies on most tracks, but the dulcet Spanish guitar line takes over on "The Christmas Song" and ...

New
September 1, 2003 CD New in new packaging. 2 discs. Originally released: 2000. Factory sealed, in shrink wrap. Ships immediately. You'll love adding these unique versions of 18 ... Christmas classics to your collection. Performed by a premiere latin/salsa duo. Sergio Lara and Joe Reyes specialize in flamenco-style guitar with spirited hands and convincing emotion. Perfect for putting you in the mood or for entertaining friends and family. "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" hints at a tango, while "Let It Snow, " like many of the cuts here, finds the duo improvising and engaging listeners with little side trips and some additional Christmas whimsy and reverence. As for their playing, their fluid figures dip occasionally into what almost sounds like bluegrass, crossed at times with Latin phrasing and accents. Closing with "Auld Lang Syne, " Navidad lives up to its billing as a colorful and contemplative holiday album. Read more Show Less

The duo is adept at a number of styles -- flamenco, jazz, folk, classical, swing -- and with Lara's mandolin, some pieces pick up a bluegrass tinge. "Feliz Navidad" rolls sweetly along, while "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" smolders over Reyes's flamenco guitar riff. Lara's mandolin carries the melodies on most tracks, but the dulcet Spanish guitar line takes over on "The Christmas Song" and could certainly inspire a few mistletoe nuzzles. "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Angels We Have Heard on High" both start out with a simple elegance and clarity, then build in complexity as they progress. The set ends on a celebratory note with several rousing variations of "Auld Lang Syne." Sophisticated and lovely, Navidad revels in the fun of the holidays while lending these classics the respect they truly deserve.
All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
Navidad is a joyous program of 18 traditional Christmas carols and holiday music with a Latin tinge played by Sergio Lara and Joe Reyes. The duo's unique Latin versions of such favorites as "Winter Wonderland," "Let It Snow," "Angels We Have Heard on High," and "Silent Night" are presented on vintage mandolin, acoustic, and flamenco guitars with sharp, rhythmic chords and breathtaking fast melodic runs. Their fresh approach is sure to stimulate the imagination as they invite listeners to take a holiday vacation through the rhythms of Spain and Mexico.
