Luis Bonfá is best known for his compositions, most notably, Manha De Carnaval (Morning of Carnival), from the cinema classic, Black Orpheus. This recording, his first American in fifteen years, is full of Bonfá's greatest compositions and also features his remarkable guitar playing. After fifteen years, we are again treated to Luiz Bonfá's enchanting music, with its understated, serene spirit. It was worth the wait.
