If you are a fan of the Dinner Jazz evening programme on Jazz FM, you'll know the kind of album this is. (If you haven't ever heard the programme, don't worry.) Recorded in LA, this album epitomises the style of slow, highly professional, dusky and, at times, slightly melancholic jazz that you might hear in a dinner-jazz environment. On this album there is just Carlos (on seven-stringed acoustic guitar) and Guilherme (on piano). Guilherme composed most of the tracks, which, melodically, have a distinctly Brazilian feel. Espiritu is sophisticated, professional stuff, stylishly delivered, without being over-the-top with notes. The recording quality is excellent, capturing the rich sound of the piano and guitar. Most tracks are slow, with a few semi-lively ones. The album is a fine example of sensitive, well-played, very late night jazz. - New Insight
