It's no revelation to my readers that the 'latin' idiom is up there with my all time favorite musical genre. After all, I came up with 'Tom Jobim.' Classical/jazz guitarist Carlos Barbosa-Lima's new collaboration with non other than Eddie Gomez, (upright bass colossus), is a dissertation of Lima's wondrous latino musical culture. Carlos's music softens & settles.......He executes his music for the sheer joy of music-making. The pulse of Lima's renditions is sufficiently mesmeric to make us responsive & relaxed in his company as we imbibe the towering artistry of this guitar virtuoso.
