Badi Assad is the younger sister of Sergio and Odair Assad -partners in a world-famous classical guitar duo. As a member of this musically talented family, Badi emerges with the makings of a musical personality which, like those of all great artists, cuts across the boundaries of our musical microcosm, standing them all on their heads in the process. Badi's Solo is simply fantastic!

Personnel:

This album was made with the purest audio path, using the very best microphones, mic preamps, analog-to-digital converters, recorders, and cables with careful attention to detail to produce the most transparent and natural sound available today.

Reviews

"...astonishing one-woman-band technique, adding gorgeous singing, hand percussion and a startling menagerie of percussive vocal effects to her stellar fretwork. The results, as heard on her two American releases, Solo and Rhythms, both on Chesky, are technically stupefying and drop dead beautiful." - Guitar Player
