Up until 1986, Carlos Barbosa-Lima recorded for the Concord Concerto subsidiary of Concord, however this release was put out by Concord Picante. The set of guitar duets teams Barbosa-Lima with the equally talented Sharon Isbin on six lesser-known Antonio Carlos Jobim songs, four by Alfredo Vianna (including "Carinhoso") and four from Ernesto Nazareth. The Brazilian music is difficult to dislike and the enthusiastic (and technically skilled) guitar work is a constant joy.
