CD Reviews

Extraordinary - classic beauty with a twist
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Badi Assad has converted me to her style of Brazilian music. Anyone who loves classical accoustic guitar music will love this cd. "Farewell" is the most haunting, perfectly played cut I have heard in years - It is worth the price of the CD for this cut alone."
Like the pleasure of a perfectly-prepared, exotic meal | New York State | 06/24/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I know of very little music that I can listen to in a variety of contexts and still get pleasure out of it like the music of Badi Assad. Sit alone or with someone, turn the lights off, relax and be taken away by complexities of tone and rhythm that are nevertheless so easy to swallow. Or turn it on while you're thinking hard about some program or essay you're writing, letting it wash around you as you concentrate. And by all means, have it playing when you serve that exotic meal to your loved one, candles lit, the aroma of gently fried garlic in the air. Delicious!"
Pleasure and Grace
Karl W. Nehring | Ostrander, OH USA | 07/04/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Brazilian guitarist Badi Assad offers an overview of Brazilian guitar music on this CD, accompanied by acoustic bass and percussion, and recorded in very clean sound by Chesky engineer Bob Katz. Not music you are likely to play every day, but when you are in the mood for Brazilian guitar, Echoes of Brazil provide an extremely satisfying 47 minutes of pleasure and grace."
