Luiz Bonfa - Six Classic Album I


Amor! The Fabolous Guitar:

This CD is more like American easy listening music than the Brazilian music I associate with Luis Bonfa. Some of the songs have flute or horn with guitar background. Even so, it is very well performed and recording quality is very good. He does three songs that he did not write and this makes the flavor of his music obvious. As usual the guitar work is superb. There doesn't seem to be the passion as in some of his other work, perhaps because of the ensemble format. Some of the songs are too short or at least for me I wish they could have been extended. In summary, I would say this was easy listening with a little bit of Brazilian flavor. Bonfa's guitar is always beautiful and enjoyable. You can't go wrong if you enjoy guitar music to go with Luiz Bonfa. - by Lee Whiteside, Amazon.com
