CD Reviews

Brazilian master in Guitar with an Orchestra in his Mind!
Carlos from Rio | Rio de Janeiro, RJ Brazil | 07/27/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Toninho Horta comes from the State of Minas Gerais in Brazil, from the same place and the same group of composers and musicians which gave us Milton Nascimento. Some of the most notable songs recorded by Nascimento are Horta's compositions, featuring "Beijo Partido" in Nascimento's album "Minas".Three qualities distinguish Horta's work:
1 - He is a great guitarrist and he plays within a conception of a big orchestra. His guitar playing seems to float wonderfully upon a sea of strings. Wonderful and unique playing!
2 - He is a sophisticated composer of intricate songs and a great melodist. "Aqui, Oh!" and "Manuel, o Audaz" are among his inspired compositions in this CD. Though sophisticated, his songs are beautifully melodious to new entrants.
3 - His guitar playing is a parameter for guitar instrumentalists in Brazil, notably those who are in their advanced playing.Sometimes, Mr. Horta decides to sing and his singing is not so good. I wouldn't mind about it.This is his first album. An inspired album of beautiful songs and sophisticated arrangements. For those who love Brazilian music or Bossa Nova or those who simply love good music."
