Synopsis

Amazon.com
Brazilian instrumentalist Egberto Gismonti's dazzling virtuosity is enough to impress, but his compositions aren't just showy pieces built around solo turns. Backed by a trio of synthesizer, bass, and cello, Gismonti creates stirring music that bridges the genres of classical, world, and folk into one soothing, seamless mix. From the weird and mesmerizing "7 Aneis" (which sounds as inspired by Philip Glass as by flamenco) to the soft-fingerstyle guitar playing on "Meninas" to the title tune (where Steve Reich-inspired piano pulsations are the background to some truly expansive string playing), this is a unique disc. Recorded in 1991 and featuring ECM's typically impeccable sonics, Infancia shows Gismonti at his most adventurous. --Jason Verlinde

"I was first introduced to Egberto Gismonti through a live performance of the trio featured in this recording. I almost did not attend, but it changed my musical outlook forever. His musical background is extraordinary. I look forward to each and every release of his, mostly on ECM Records. This is Brazilian meets jazz meets fusion meets classical. Enjoy."
