Notes & Reviews:

JOURNEY TO THE AMAZON was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best

Classical Crossover Album.

Personnel: Sharon Isbin (guitar); Paul Winter (saxophone); Thiago de Mello (percussion).

Journey to the Amazon is a fascinating collaboration between classical guitarist Sharon Isbin, saxophonist Paul Winter and percussionist/composer Thiago de Mello. The three musicians explore South American, particularly Brazilian, rhythms and songs, devising a mesmerizing fusion of worldbeat, jazz and classical. While this certainly isn't music for purists, it's adventurous and evocative, and it often fulfills its grand ambitions. ~ Leo Stanley
