DE SOUSA, PHILIPE: Boite a petits...
Pieces for Portugese guitar, classical guitar, fretless guitar, contrabasse, xylophone, and percussion, with occasional violin. All played by de Sousa (except the violin), always overdubbed in small string orchestras, sometimes piled up like a zither. An excellent, deeply musical record, tuneful and exquisitely played; always very Portugese in flavour, but with an edge. Detuned moments are perfectly placed, and always contained in sharp, focused composition. L
