Experts on the acoustic guitar scene will doubtlessly recognize Alex Alves as an old acquaintance. It was with guitar trio “Madmo” when this brilliant classical guitarist from Brasil made his debut on Acoustic Music Records. For “Verde” Alves wrote twelve songs for solo guitar which clearly follow the latin tradition, think of Villa-Lobos, Ponce or Baden-Powell, nevertheless with a very modern and individual approach. With ease Alves’ music oscillates between classic concepts and jazz music, between latin verve and a distinct feeling for musical formality. But it’s not only the music that makes Alves unforgettable. Moreover, he is a formidable guitarist who never looses a bit of his expressiveness even if facing the most challenging degree of difficulty. A rare gift, brought to perfection on “Verde”.
