Bola Sete

Bola Sete was a Brazilian guitarist who played mainly jazz music on nylon-string acoustic guitar. He also made some solo instrumental records. I used to have the Ocean record, which was once on LP on George Winston's Lost Lake label, which was a subsidiary of Windham Hill. This is one the most incredible recordings of acoustic guitar I have ever heard. I was happy to discover that it is now on CD and that apparently the LP was only half of the record, the new issue is on 2 CDs! Read about it or order it at I also used to have the Jungle Suite record, which, as discussed on the Samba Moon website, is quite a bit different. It looks like this one is also about to be issued on CD.
