It demonstrates an innovative approach can revive an old form of music. Pixinguinha (Alfredo Da Rocha Vianna Junior 1897-1973) is one of the best composers in Brazil. Many instrumental artists have recorded his tunes/songs. Most likely you will hear music be reproduced by a small ensemble with saxphone/flute/guitar/pandeiro and a few extras elements, as Pixinga originally planned. To use only two guitars [one soprano guitar (cavaquinho), one 7-string] to mimic the sound of many more pieces needs some creativity. Henrique Cazes and Marcello Goncalves have done a great job on this CD in rearranging those classic pieces. Marcello's 7-string guitar went beyond the base chords as accompany to a dual. The 7-string equally shares the music line while providing a solid base beats. --an Amazon reviewer
