Review:
These exquisite "lullabies for guitar" are perfect for drifting and dreaming, whatever your age. Varied, mostly instrumental arrangements of traditional and original pieces from around the world are led by the gifted de Grassi on guitar, with Doug Harmon on haunting cello and Karen Gottlieb on orchestral harp. Moussa Kanouté offers quiet vocals on his lovely, "Mamá, Papá." A sampling of other selections: "The Rain is Pouring" from Ukraine, "Boo Maramba" from Brazil, the Lebanese "When My Soul Embraces You," "Swedish Lullaby," and "A La Nanita Nana" from Spain. These beautiful songs of the heart, performed throughout with delicate clarity and nuance, are balm to the spirit.
