We NEED More of This Kind of Fresh Artistry

"Being a musician myself, I have followed the likes of Pat Metheny (a very nice guy too!), for decades. When Nando Lauria performed with Metheny, a new feel was created. In addition to this work, and Novo Brasil, as well as his other Narada works, you HAVE to hear Lauria on the the Narada Christmas Collection doing Gloria. The harmonies are incredible and will give you chills. Too bad its the groups like N'SYNC and Brittney Spears that get all the hype. Sheesh. Tis the season... cheers!"

"What a beautiful recording! Nando is a wonderful guitarist and singer who has put together a beautiful selection of songs. There is an amazing sense of joy in his music; you can't help but feel better after listening to it. There isn't a disappointing track on the CD. This is especially recommended for fans of Pat Metheny (whom Nando worked with in the early 80s). There is a kind of "Methenyesque" quality to several songs, reminiscent of the music on "Still Life (Talking)" and "Letter from Home". In fact, Lyle Mays plays piano on several songs. All in all not to be missed; highly recommended!"
Relaxing Acoustic/Brazillian Jazz

"This CD isn't going to be for everybody, but if you are into a more acoustic/relaxed feel and like the variety of the island tempos, check Nando out. He's a fine, fleet fingered guitarist with a great touch, and hey, any album with some work with ex-Pat Metheny drummer Danny Gottlieb and Lyle Mays is worth looking into in my book. Fans of Pat Metheny, especially his older work, should absolutely check Nando out, although of course Nandos guitar work is much different."
