A set that anyone who likes Atomic Attic Age mood/jazz can get into. Excellent sound/engineering.

From the back cover: Laurindo Almeida has achieved fame in widely diversified fields of music by creating beautiful and serious compositions for guitar, by performing brilliantly as solo guitarist with some of the nation's most distinguished jazz bands, and by playing with equal brilliance on the classical concert stage. His appearances at such places as Carnegie Hall, Chicago's and San Francisco's Civi Opera Houses, and the Hollywood Bowl, have been marked by enthusiastic acclaim of his inspired artistry.
