5.0 out of 5 stars True to Jobim, 10 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casa (Audio CD)
Beautifully played Jobim classics. The mood is very relaxed. The arrangements are beautifully thought out. The performances are spot on and seems effortless, especially the vocals and piano. Apparently all the musicians had collaborated with Jobim and it shows. A stand out track is 'O Grand Amor' but they are all good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for short visit, 10 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series of guidebooks is the most convenient of all for short visits. The way it is constructed is truly ingenious. It allows you to view a clear map and summaries of sites simultaneously. You simply flip over the map to find out about restaurants, shopping in the map area. It is slim and fits in a jacket pocket. It avoids the unnecessary detail and background that pads out other guides. This guide to Venice is perfect for a long weekend stay. The maps are clear. So far as I could test the restaurant information is accurate as are the times for museums etc. I had booked my hotel before buying it so I can't comment on its accuracy in that regard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide but not a method, 10 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a clear well presented introduction to playing the baroque guitar. The text is very informative with an academic leaning. Half the book consists of a valuable collection of well chosen pieces for baroque guitar from a variety of composers set out in both tab and stave for different tunings of the instrument. The book is not, however, a method for baroque guitar with progressive lessons. It would best suit a student who already played some classical guitar.
