Reviews

"A second gorgeous package from South American guitarist Caram, still reminiscent of the cloying "Girl From Ipanema" but far more digestible than 99% of the junk being passed off as 'ethnically important.' As ever, it's a sonic delight, fortunately rising above other audiophile titles because Ms. Caram has talent."
