Toquinho - Asa Branca and Other Successes

My mom got this CD in France a long time ago and i honestly don't know if these track names or even the CD title itself is correct. I also can't find any CD art so thats just a picture of Toquinho. He's one of the most insane bossa nova/classical guitarists I've ever heard. This CD is full of different styles of music from very somber and emotional solo classical guitar pieces to upbeat salsa songs with a full band and vocals in portuguese. This is probably a really rare CD so i figured I'd share it with everyone and hopefully you will all enjoy it as much as I do.

Love it. Not necessarily as something to just sit down and listen to, but I like to put on my headphones and have it playing as I write. Very soothing and relaxing.
