    An accomplished guitarist, vocalist, and composer, this 2001 Latin Grammy nominee is widely considered one of the finest musical talents to emerge from Brazil in the 1990s. Cine Baronesa, Guinga's fifth CD, shows why, with 13 elegant songs that explore styles ranging from samba and choro to blues and waltz without ever missing a step. The opening track, "Melodia Branca," which the artist wrote for his daughter, is almost devastating in its poetic beauty, with Gilson Peranzzetta's warm piano and lush string arrangement unveiling an emotionally resonant waltz. Even more potent is Guinga's solo guitar version of the tune on the closing track, which is sure to melt any romantic's heart. The rest of Cine Baronesa is equally beautiful, from the bluesy balladry of jazz-influenced "Yes, Z Mans" to the lively samba feel of "No Fundo Do Rio." The sound may a bit too smooth for those who prefer more of an Afro-Brazilian vibe, as most of those tunes are designed to set a sultry, sentimental mood perfect for quiet evenings by the fire. But if you're in the mood for love, Cine Baronesa makes for a wonderfully romantic soundtrack. ~ Bret Love

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (12/01, p.119) - " of those charming oddities that belongs nowhere in particular...Guinga is an artist making music grounded in his roots, but fashioned on his own terms."
    NAPRA Review (01-02/02, p.72) - "...Jazz and soundtrack influences speak out from within the structures of samba, waltz, choro, and other Brazilian musical traditions..."
