Tacy Edwards Reviews:
“These same musicians brought us a disc of the music of Radames Gnatalli… I was impressed by that performance, and I took as much delight in this collection of solos and duos by various Brazilian composers. …most of the music is new to me, or at least rarely recorded‚the guitar world tends to look to solo works rather than chamber music from these composer, so it was nice to hear…If you love Brazilian music, you’ll find much pleasure here.” —Ken Keaton, American Record Guide
