CD Reviews

ONE OF THE GREATES
ENRIQUE GOMEZ ARVIZU | MEXICO D.F. | 11/19/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"TONINHO HORTA IS ONE THE GREATES GUITARMAN IN THE WORLD, THE FRESH STYLE IT'S SO BEATIFULL, SPECIALY IN THIS ALBUM."
One of the best Brazilian Jazz Albums Ever!!!!!!!!!!!
Papetti | Mexico City | 09/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Toninho has been considered by experts and fans everywhere as one of the best guitarists and musicians ever come out of Brazil or elsewhere, and this is perhaps his best album (and that's saying a lot).
Check out two renditions he plays from two countrymen of his:

1) Milton Nascimento's: From the Lonely Afternoons (A true melodic gem that only Milton knows how to write), and...
2) Juarez Moreira's: Diamantina. ooooffffffff!!!!!!!! Toninho has no comparison.
And if that was not sufficient, check out the best cut in the album (or so I think), the tribute to the great Brazilian trombonist Raulzinho; here, he's managed to form a superb nonet with:
Joyce on Vocals
Marcio Montarroyos on Trumpet
Hugo Fattorusso on Keyboards
Robertinho Silva on Drums
Toninho himself on Guitars
Jamil Joanes on Bass
Paulo Guimaraes on Flute
and
Ronaldo & Wanderley Silva on Percussions.

A masterpiece/collectible like few...... don't let it pass you by.
