Editorial Reviews

For their seventh Nonesuch album, Jardim Abandonado (Abandoned Garden), the guitar-playing duo of Sergio and Odair Assad offer a collection of tracks culled from the duo s performance repertoire of the last decade. The album will released September 18, 2007. The duo will tour the U.S. this fall, and also play a series of dates with their sister Badi Assad, guitars /vocals; Romero Lubambo, acoustic jazz guitar; and Celso Machado, percussion /vocals as part of the Brazilian Guitar Festival
(complete itinerary below). The Assad brothers, who ve played together for more than 40 years, have been acclaimed by critics around the world for the extraordinary range of their repertoire, for Sergio s innovative arrangements and transcriptions, and for the unique nature of the brothers musical interplay. As the Los Angeles Times once put it, their work together is so precise,
so perfectly synchronized that it reaches far beyond musical partnership into a kind of creative symbiosis. The Washington Post
took that praise one step further, calling the Assads the best two-guitar team in existence, maybe even in history.

Program: Top class. Very well thought and entertaining.
Performances: There are many great guitar duos, but these two play as one.
Arrangements: I had some trepidation seeing almost 15 minutes of 'Rhapsody in Blue' for guitar duo, but it is quite spectacular and worthy.
Any dissapointments? Sadly yes. No liner notes!

This is a lovely CD, with the Assads in peak form. The selections are beautifully arranged, in particular "Chora Coracao", which is one of Jobim's most haunting songs. The only flaw in the recording is the strange addition of "Rhapsody In Blue", which just does not fit in with the evocative mood of the CD. Highly recommended!

Format: Audio CD
Après le disque "baroque" et le disque "piazzolla", les Frères Assad ont encore frappé un grand coup dans l'univers de la musique pour guitare,... et de la musique tout court ! Il est peu probable que Debussy ou Gershwin aient pu imaginer un jour leur musique transcrite pour deux guitares, et pourtant les Frères l'ont fait, et avec quel brio ! La transcription de la "Suite Bergamasque" en particulier est une véritable prouesse musicale, car on en oublie très vite son origine pianistique, et son interprétation, qui se compare aux plus belles interprétations traditionnelles au piano, constitue un morceau d'anthologie de cet album. Dommage peut-être que les pièces de la suite ait été séparées sur le disque ; de sorte que la Suite n'est plus... une suite !! Les frères Gershwin ont composé Rhapsody in Blue ; il était naturel que les frères Assad la jouent à merveille ! Et la transcription pour deux guitares est de toute beauté. Les pièces de Jobim sont plus connues, mais on prend un immense plaisir à les écouter dans cette interprétation pour deux guitares... brésiliennes. Une mention toute particulière doit être faite pour la musique, très personnelle, de Clarice Assad (pianiste !...). Mais on ne peut pas parler de ce disque sans évoquer la musique écrite par Sergio Assad lui-même : Tahhia Li Ossoulina, une pièce de musique arabe absolument étonnante, jouée de manière époustouflante, et qui constitue la "cerise sur le gâteau" de ce disque en tout point admirable.

Once again the Assad Duo display their mastery over a wide range of stylistic music from the rhythms of their homeland Brazil to the jazz influence of the US with visits to Europe's impressionism and the modality of the mid-east. The recording is full of pure beauty and exhilaration. This is a must own CD - not just for guitarists!

Composers from very different cultures separated by centuries in time speak with a beautifully intertwined language through the voice of these phenomenal interpreters.
Of profound beauty, it pleases the heart and the mind.
My favorite CD. It is on constant replay and will not age.

The Assad's are the best guitar duo on this planet! There have been many attempts to imitate their talent,
but these guys define musical and instrumental virtuosity. No one else comes close to these guys and this record is full of some amazing/wonderful transcriptions and arrangements only possible with their gifts
and artistry. "Jardim Abandonado" is a legendary recording! Their arrangement and interpretation of
Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" is magical and effective. They also offer novel and exciting renditions
of works by Debussy, Jobim, and Sergio's original. Also, a brilliant new work by Clarice Assad featured
on the CD as well. This is ANOTHER favorite in my collection of Assad CD's. A must have recording from
this Brazilian superduo! Thanks for making such wonderful music!
