Overall, I love this CD. But there is one jam on here that rises above all the others. If you're a drummer, you MUST listen to this CD just to hear Danny Gottlieb totally tear up the skins on "I'll Never Forget." This is a performance you do NOT want to miss.

When you think of guitar heroes one of the first should be Toninho Horta, what say of a guy who gave Pat Metheny guitar lessons? :) one more Brilliant work from this Brazilian real musician.

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! Pay special attention to his composition "Gershwin", a Horta's guitar solo obviously inspired in George Gershwin's conceptions.
2 - He is a sophisticated composer of intricate songs and a great melodist. "Bycicle Ride" and "Liana" 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.
Just like Tom Jobim, sometimes, Mr. Horta decides to sing on a few tracks of his albums and his singing is not so good though the songs and lyrics are always highly inspirated. I wouldn't mind about his bad singing.
This was a Horta's album recorded in 1989 for Verve Forecast. His inspiration on beautiful songs and sophisticated arrangements are all there. Also Pat Metheny plays the title song "Moonstone" in a guitar duo with Horta in this CD.
For those who love sophisticated Brazilian music or Bossa Nova in the Tom Jobim tradition or those who simply love good music.

Aaahhh (sigh).
This is a magnificent album by one of the best guitarists from Brazil; Toninho Horta. This album was recorded in a series of recordings Toninho did for Verve; and even though he's mentioned he's not exclusively a Jazz player, here he offers us a superb Brazilian Jazz masterpiece. Check it out, you'll love it so much, I'll guarantee you.
My favourite cuts are (Yarabela) which is already a classic of Brazilian Jazz, and (I'll Never Forget).
Just check his guests for this album and then you'll tell me:
- Eliane Elias / Piano
- Paulo Braga / Drums
- Armando Marcal / Percussion
- Steve Thornton / Percussion
- Billy Drewes / Sax
- Nana Vasconcelos / Percussion
- Randy Brecker / Flugelhorn
- Pat Metheny / Guitars
- Russell Ferrante / Keyboards
- Robertinho Silva / Percussion
- Ricardo Silveira / Arrangements
..... etc. etc.
What are you waiting for?
