Carlos Barbosa-Lima has long been a masterful interpreter of a wide range of melodic music. A brilliant acoustic guitarist, Barbosa-Lima gives taste and feeling to works that range from Gershwin to Bach, Jobim to Debussy. His releases have found him exploring the music of Scott Joplin, Luiz Bonfa, Cole Porter, Leonard Bernstein and a variety of lesser-known Brazilian composers.
'Siboney' celebrates the golden
age of Latin popular music with 20 songs, mostly from the '30s-'50s, in guitar
solo and small group arrangements by Brazilian-born Carlos Barbosa-Lima, one of
the world's leading Latin and Jazz acoustic guitarists. Since his U.S. debut in 1967, Barbosa-Lima has enjoyed a global concert
career marked by numerous distinguished recordings on the Concord labels, now
mostly out-of-print. This is a re-release of the now out-of-pring 2001 Khaeon
title 'Mambo No. 5' under a new title! It is an exciting collaboration of two
Latin and jazz legends -- Carlos Barbosa-Lima and Eddie Gomez -- in classic
Cuban and Puerto Rican repertoire.
