Carlos Maceiras: Guitarra Latinoamericana
This C.D. of guitar music is much more enjoyable than that the previous instrumental I listened too from Chet Atkins. I have always enjoyed Latin guitar. However there are a couple of pieces which didn’t work for me. There are a couple of waltzes, but I always thought that would be dance music. I have a hard time hearing the beat, and if I had the beat right the music is much to fast to dance to, without physically causing an injury.
However a couple of the pieces were very nice. “Terasca I and II” had a very nice feel, and the rhythm kept me entertained. Also “Sons of Carrilhoes” had a nice feel. There was one song called “Tango” which started very nicely, but then got bogged down with trying to be artistic, with stops in the music a couple of times. This song didn’t work for me other than the beginning and the end. “Guarania” was also a nice song and very relaxing. This music would be great at playing as a background to relax, like in a store or someplace. Plenty to like in this album.
