Probably my most played album
on 23 November 2001
I had already seen Antonio play live and been suitably impressed, "probably the best acoustic guitar player in the world", so when I Naim advised me this album was available I bought it at once. What a great decision! Forcione's playing is more reserved in general than on some of his albums, allowing Ms Sciubba's vocals to really take front stage and the album is the better for it. The guitar arrangements are perfect for the pieces,, subtle yet lacking none of the usual flair and virtuosity.
The songs themselves range from fun ballads through to the soul wrenchingly beautiful Caruso (of which I have 4 different versions, but this is the one which brings tears to my eyes).
I did go to the London Hifi show, just to hear the performance and wasn't disappointed.
Don't dither, just buy it.
