Solo performer: Toninho Horta (acoustic guitar, vocals).
Recorded at East Side Sound, New York. Includes liner notes by Toninho Horta.
All songs written by Toninho Horta except for "Ceu De Brasilia," "Diana," "Durango Kid" (Fernando Brant/Toninho Horta) and "Across The Universe" (John Lennon/Paul McCartney).
On this excellent set, the Brazilian acoustic guitarist/singer Toninho Horta plays unaccompanied solos. Horta wrote or co-composed every song, and his program is full of rich themes, haunting understated vocalizing (often wordless), and melodic guitar. The atmospheric performances, which are as much folk as jazz, work both as background music and for close listening. Overall, this is one of Toninho Horta's better efforts. ~ Scott Yanow
