5.0 out of 5 stars Been waiting for this one! January 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Bill Frisell and Vinicius Cantuaria last teamed up for a project called The Intercontinentals, which was an excellent world music mash-up featuring a cosmopolitan cast. This project is something else entirely: an intimate conversation focusing on Spanish-language songs, each a small gem. Both artists have unique guitar styles that mesh quite beautifully, and Cantuaria's vocals evoke Joao Gilberto and other Brazilian masters is a very spare and contemporary way, even though he's singing in Spanish. This music will sound equally great in midwinter by the fire or in midsummer at the beach, and you don't need to understand the lyrics to get the message.

Just buy this You won't be sorry. Simply outstanding! Bill and Vinicius have completely different styles and yet they flawlessly compliment each other to produce a wonderfully attractive and very unique sound. You won't believe the magical tones their guitars produce together. They play with what can only be described as a remarkably sumptuous quiet intensity. "Lagrimas Mexicanas" is an intimate and frequently haunting roller coaster ride of romance and desire. Like most of Bill's work, the recording quality and mix are first-rate. The huge soundstage is awash with effortless waves of three-dimensionally interwoven textures and colors which create startling moods. This is especially evident while listening to the CD on a good two-channel stereo system. Just great from start to finish. If you are already a fan of Vinicius or Bill or guitar music, there's almost no doubt you will like this. Should be a good intro for anyone new to either of these terrific musicians. There's a little sticky label on the CD shrink-wrap that reads, "Bill Frisell is the Clark Kent of guitar"...imho, this is a perfect description of his vast talents.

If you would like to Listen to SuperBill "Jump Off a Cliff", search for this video title on YouTube: " Bill Frisell & Vinicius Cantuaria - Lagrimas Mexicanas ". Very interesting and worth viewing. While they play, they describe the music on this CD perfectly. I am not sure if Bill jumped or if Vinicius just pushed him over the edge! Buy this CD today and decide for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way to go Bill! January 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You have got to hand it to Bill Frisell for he demonstrates he is open to rhythms of Latino music. On this disc he collaborates with first class musicians and has the confidence to use his sound-style of playing the guitar and combine it successfully. Many reviews ago a fan wrote how disappointed he was that Mr. Frisell abandoned "country". Creativity is to be applauded not crippled by such an attitude. OORAH! & OLE! Bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like!? May 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you are already familiar with the work of Bill Frisell or Vinicius Cantuaria (and assuming you like their work) then you may press the "Buy" button with complete confidence that this collection of tunes by these two talented musicians will deliver a return which far exceeds your investment (of what, seven bux if you choose the mp3 download? Worth it many times over!). So click that puppy now and start enjoying this delicious music immediately.

If somehow you've stumbled into this place and haven't heard these two before - you are in for a treat. If you're not already acquainted - try out one or two mp3 tracks. I recommend: "Lagrimas De Amor" or "Calle 7" or "Mi Declaracion." I guessing you'll come back for more.

Both men have immense skills on the wires. Cantuaria has a wonderful voice and understated singing style. Frisell has mad studio skills so the recording and production on these tracks is stunning. So please do not skip a listen to these tracks on your iPod or other headphones.

I have at least five CDs by Cantuaria and probably as many by Frisell, including their previous joint venture, "Intercontinentals" - this is by far one of the best by either man. I bought this via download about twelve hours ago and must have played it three complete plays already. So nice. Enjoy!
