Classical Current - Laurindo Almeida

The Breeze And I
Classical Current
Laurindo Almeida
Produced by Sonny Burke
Warner Bros. - Seven Arts

I pulled this one out of the "electronic music" bin at a record store I frequent. The notes mention Almeida's "electronic classical guitar" and hints around that he's studied the work of John Cage.

This "electronically-influenced" album is a pleasant and interesting (and sometimes curious) blend of classical and period light jazz/pop/Latin along with, what seems to me... a very subdued "electronic" vibe as mentioned in the notes.

The Breeze And I
My Reverie
Till The End Of Time
The Lamp Is Low
Baubles, Bangles And Beads
Full Moon And Empty Arms
Moon Love
My Prayer
My Moonlight Madonna
Our Love
When I Write My Song
Theme From The Warsaw Concerto


  1. I now have a copy of this recording, it is beautiful! :)

  2. where can i get it?

  3. Mark, this album doesn't seem to be available for purchase anymore. Unfortunately, It's not available in lossless quality online either. Is there any way you could upload the whole album in FLAC format? I really like this, but can't find a high quality source.

    Thank You!


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
