Luiz Bonfa ‎– Amor! The Fabulous Guitar Of Luiz Bonfa

99.99 89.99

I think this may be the first album made by Bonfa following the international success of “Manha De Carnaval,” the theme from Black Orpheus. It's a fairly sparse instrumental album, filled mainly with solo pieces, as well as several tunes where Bonfa is delicately backed up by George Shearing and his band, along with Don Elliott. There is some flashy guitar work, although this album feels pretty lightweight and isn't immediately arresting. It will grow on you with repeated listens, though. Silly cover art.
