(on both volumes)… “The pieces gathered in these two volumes were taken from original manuscripts and from recordings of Garoto’s own playing. The rhythms and melodies are seductive, the harmonies sophisticated, and the overall effect is thoroughly captivating. The publications include a wealth of helpful information about the composer and the pieces… No guitarist interested in Brazilian music should be without these volumes.” — David Grimes, Soundboard Magazine

“Paulo Bellinati does a superb job of resurrecting and interpreting the work of the brilliant Brazilian composer/guitarist, Garoto, my dear friend by whom I was greatly influenced. Thank you Paulo Bellinati for bringing Garoto’s music back to life. May it live forever.” — Luiz Bonfá

“…his interpretations reflect the best of the Brazilian tradition—romanticism, intimacy and rhythmic sensuality. These music folios and recording, faithful to Garoto’s original manuscripts and recordings, are most impressive.” — Carlos Barbosa-Lima

“…gems from a composer much ahead of his time—a pioneer of the bossa nova style due to his harmonic complexities and rhythmic innovations… he (Paulo) creates a true masterpiece” — Arnaldo de Souteiro, Tribuna da Imprensa - Rio

“Garoto’s legacy is one of great importance, not only in the world of Brazilian music but also in the literature of the guitar. Guitar Solo Publications gives us a triple treat: first by recording the guitar works of Garoto; second by having Paulo Bellinati, the arranger and transcriber of the pieces, as the soloist who gives a performance of rare delicacy; and third by publishing the printed editions of all the material contained in the album. This is truly a treasure of a collection. Thanks Dean Kamei.” — Oscar Castro Neves
