Complex acoustic fretwork with brazilian jazz sounds
(5 out of 5 stars)
"An excellent release from Andy Summers. I have been a fan of his for a few years and and can definitley appreciate his musical talents. To some, this recording may sound a bit rough and esoteric, but to others it will sound downright beautiful. He covers tunes by Brazillian musicians as well as Dizzy Gillespie, Dave Brubeck, and George Rogers. I saw him play in January at the Baked Potato in Hollywood and he was awesome. Not only that, but he also autographed my guitar and we chatted a bit. GET THIS RECORDING."
Strings of Desire for Lovers of Music
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Strings of Desire is a collaborative venture between two giutar virtuosos.There is no additional insrumentation other than the musicians themselves playing acoustically.This CD cites jazz,pop and MPB in the liner notes and is packed full of great tunes,10 in all,9 covers kicking off with "frevo", continuing with Jobims "Stoneflower" but including "Night in Tunisia" and a refreshing rendition of the ever popular standard "My Favourite Things" with one original composition by Andy Summers "Samba for Counting the Days". If you havn`t got it ,get it, because anyone who loves music might hear "Strings of Desire" as a valuable addition to their collection."
