4.90 9

Bossa guitar, dreamy orchestrations, and a wonderful American take on the Brazilian sound of the 60s – served up with sparkling Capitol Records production in a set that's easily one of the greatest by guitarist Laurindo Almeida! Almeida's guitar is matched here with some lightly jazzy backings from Lex De Azevedo – slightly pop, but always groovy – and with a gentle sound that matches bossa roots with some of the more complicated modes from 60s soundtrack years – served up in sweeping strings, moody woodwinds, and some nicely isolated notes from Almedia's acoustic guitar. Titles include "A Man & A Woman", done very nicely, plus "Mas Que Nada", "Soft Mood", "Bluesette", "Call Me", and "Going Out Of My Head".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
