    Much of this CD is at a quiet volume, but the music is full of tension and inner excitement, with repetition used very effectively. Filled with memorable folk melodies that flow logically (the jubilant main theme of "Infancia" is a high point), the music is quite stimulating, often shifting moods gradually and coming up with unexpected twists. Gismonti (mostly on piano but making two appearances on guitar) is the lead voice in his quintet, and he contributed all of the compositions, so he deserves the main credit for the recording's success; well worth searching for. ~ Scott Yanow
