Tango: Laurindo Almeida and Charlie Byrd

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This unusual CD finds guitarists Laurindo Almeida and Charlie Byrd who have both mastered bop and Brazilian music performing 11 tangoes with the assistance of bassist Joe Byrd and drummer Chuck Redd. Although the two acoustic guitarists have their short solos, the emphasis in this delightful set is on their ensemblework, respectful interpretations of the melodies and those infectious tango rhythms.
