About this Album

The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

Sérgio and Odair Assad perform wide-ranging work from their native Brazil, which the Los Angeles Times calls “a fertile fusion nexus for guitarists.” Says Sérgio, “Some people call this jazz, some call it avant-garde, but the Brazilians just call it popular music.” Included are works by Villa-Lobos, Pascoal, and works by Sérgio himself.
