As you may know, Laurindo Almeida was a virtuoso guitarist, who excelled in several music genres, for example classical, jazz, Latin-American (particularly bossa nova & tango) and Latin/jazz fusion. He was also a composer. On this CD he plays chiefly great old evergreen tunes along with a few classical pieces and five of his own compositions. As ever, he plays with impeccable technique & sensitive interpretation, and for me the rating is five-star all the way. My only adverse criticism is lightweight and concerns a misprint: the impressionistic tune "Laura" isn't by "Raskin" but by the American composer, David Raksin. If your taste in music is catholic and you rather like Latin-American rhythms and good tunes played sensitively on classical guitar -- then this CD is for you!
