Disc Two contains eight never-before-released Bola Sete pieces. Samba Moon. This gorgeous, haunting, and propulsive two-CD collection of solo guitar pieces was recorded in the s by Djalma de Andrade, a black Brazilian who first came to the United States in after decades steeped in Rio's jazz and folk music scenes.
After being "discovered" by Dizzy Gillespie, de Andrade--whose stage name was Bola Sete, or "seven ball," the black ball in Brazilian pool--played in a number of popular jazz combos before turning to solo guitar in Touring around California, de Andrade perfected a formidably unique blend of classical Spanish guitar, jazz, American folk, bossa nova, and other Brazilian flavors. It's no surprise that John Fahey released half this strange and beautiful music on his Takoma label this edition adds eight unreleased tracks.
Some of these pieces glitter like moonlight on the sea, others surge like groaning storms, but throughout it all, de Andrade manages to conjure darkness without despair, and sweetness without cloying sentiment.

This recording combines not only the original LP version but also Ladies 1st - Trina - Diamond Princess additional music. All the music fits together very well as if it had originally been one single recording. Bola Sete's playing is sometimes a little odd, sometimes unusual, but always melodic and pleasing. It tends to let you drift and go into trance. If you like islands, and you think you would like music that just comes from the environment of the ocean and the shore andthe trees, you will very likely enjoy this.
One person found this helpful. Bola Sete was one of the greatest Brazilian guitarists ever as well as one of the finest solo guitar acts that you could ever hear live! Bola proves on this CD that he was one of the "best-ever" solo acoustic, nylon string guitarists Bolsa Sete is no longer with us, but his artistry, his fluid mastery of the Spanish guitar to give voice to all of the longings, emotions aspirations, and transcendency of spirit give voice to the human experience and is a testament to his genius.
You feel his soul in his compositions. A truly memorable experience. Format: Audio CD. This groovy independent re-release of Bola Sete's album, "Ocean" includes a complete CD's worth of extra, previously unissued material. Solo acoustic guitar seldom sounded so great, as he revisits and refashions classic Brazilian themes and energetically plunges through several flamenco-based tunes. Originally recorded for the Takoma label, these tunes bear the distictive stamp of John Fahey's production style: the muscular Spanish classical style is quietly subverted by gentle cascades of echo and velvet-toned reverb, while in the softer passages, layer upon layer of melody and rhythm are allowed to build up and well over.
At times, the contrast between the ethereal bossa nova tunes and the more aggressive flamenco tracks may be a little disconcerting; it's not as relaxing as you might have thought going into it. But it is dazzling and hyponotic -- once you get into the flow of this album, it rewards you handsomely. The "new" material on Disc Two is particularly nice. In his earlier albums, he played with groups in much more of a jazz-bossa nova vein.
This album is a solo guitar instrumental masterpiece that is much more exploratory, Shocking You - The Shocking Blue* - Live In Japan, and intense than anything he did previously with Vince Guaraldi. Imagine an artist with the imagination of John Fahey, the intensity of John Coltrane, the lyricism of Milton Nascimento and the sheer virtuosity of Paco de Lucia E Minor Anthem (Nhato Mashup) - Too Many Artists* - E Minor Anthem (Nhato Mashup) you are getting close.
His music Just The Way You Are - DJ Herbie - Smiling People Compilation such diverse forms as Jazz, Brazilian folk music, Classical, and Flamenco, but it all ends up sounding as individual and singular as Bola Sete really was.
Part of this two CD set was available on vinyl at one point thru Windham Hill. I am very glad that this album is now available with all the wonderful music from this session. I would like to thank Anne Sete for being instrumental in getting this music out. This is a great gift to us all and a wonderful tribute to one of the great musicians. I gave Bola Sete's Tour of Force 5 stars. This CD is worlds above it. The range Sete crosses on the 19 tracks is astounding.
It is a work of beauty encompassing a myriad of influences including folk, bossa nova, jazz, flamenco, and classical guitar blending together into his own inimitable style. It is very much mood music but the moods it creates are vast and complex; more like murals than paintings. There are no happy songs are sad songs but rather interwoven emotions. Sete's virtuosity is mesmerizing, exhilerating.
It is not challenging to listen to. It is impressionistic as if Debussey had been born a Latin An Ocean Of Memories (Radio Edit) - Blue Nature - An Ocean Of Memories. Listening to him play is a religious experience. This is a beautifull recording of a great guitarist. See all 8 customer reviews.
