"Brazilian guitarist Torcuato Mariano's CD Last Look has some fine tracks on it. The opening song entitled Africa reminds me of Pat Metheny, yet he retains his own style. He does his own scatting-style vocals on this one too. It is definitely one of the best songs on the CD. Everything I Couldn't Say With Words is another song with scatting this time it features Claudio Nucci. This is another very good song. This kind of reminds me of the duo Special EFX. The title cut is a beautiful song featuring some fine acoustic guitar work. This makes for 3 good songs in a row!!! On the song In The Rhythm Of My Heart...Mariano turns it up several notches and performs an acid-jazz style song. Very catchy!!! A Very Special Place is another fine song and is one of my favorites on this CD!! Good keyboard playing on this too! Secrets highlights the electric guitar style of Torcuato. It's a fairly intense song compared to the rest of the CD. Ocean Way gets this CD back on track to the smooth jazz style heard earlier. It has some programming on it that sounds flutes. More than likely it's been done using keyboards. Very nice! Walking On Clouds is slower, melodic tune with a nice sound to it. Rio Stomp has a great bass line in the beginning of it. It's definitely and up tempo song!!! The final cut Dindi is a song written in the memory of Tom Jobim. It's a mellow, guitar-driven song. Not bad. Please don't overlook Last Look! Add it to your collection today!"
