Description by

Before there were Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto, there was Luiz Bonfa. Brazilian guitarist Bonfa used the more traditional Samba rhythms of the Bossa Nova and helped pave the way for the huge international success of that evocative and romantic musical genre. The first American recordings of Bonfa are preserved in this original Atlantic album. Among the highlights are the songs "Brasilia," "Blue Madrid," and "Arabesque."

Rating 5.0 Amor Music Lover: from Miami -- March, 15, 2005

In this CD the professional as well as the neophyte is presented with an amazing guitarist, one who ranks as the most versatile and technically sound player that I have ever heard. His amazing right hand technique is unsurpassed by any other guitarist. Bonf? is as responsible for the ?Bossa Nova? movement as Jobim and Gilberto even though he does not get the credit he deserves. One only needs to listen to Carnival in this CD to remember this haunting melody as one of the cornerstones of Bossa Nova. For those who have never heard Luis Bonfa play, I envy the feeling you will get when you hear him for the first time, it is unforgettable. I recommend this CD to all lovers of music and at this price it is the best buy ever!
