    The late Charlie Byrd deserves a place in jazz history if only for two things: he brought the nylon-string acoustic guitar into the jazz mainstream, and he helped introduce the Brazilian sound into jazz (and pop). Byrd's use of classical guitar technique in swing and bebop established a style that was sublimely tasteful, warmly rhythmic, and mellow without being bland. Like THE BEST OF THE CONCORD YEARS, THE CONCORD JAZZ HERITAGE series is a wonderful cross-section of Charlie Byrd's artistry in a variety of contexts, covering his later career. Jazz standards, some romantic mood music, and the Brazilian sounds of samba and bossa nova are all on order here. Throughout, Byrd plays with subtle, muted fervor and gentle swing.
