Toninho Horta- Prato Feito

Horta and Pat are gone.

This Brazilian recording was released in 1980- and it sounds like it. The synths, percussion flourishes and vocal effects are dated. A major figure in his native country, Toninho Horta allows this song to serve as a showcase for an extended melodic guitar solo by Pat Metheny. Still, you’ll be rewarded if you can manage to accept it for what it is, and allow this exceedingly beautiful music to cascade over you. The self-titled CD is out of print.
