Carlos Barbosa-Lima Trio
Carlos Barbosa-Lima has long been a masterful interpreter of a wide range of melodic music. A brilliant acoustic guitarist, Barbosa-Lima gives taste and feeling to works that range from Gershwin to Bach, Jobim to Debussy. A native of Brazil, Barbosa-Lima began studying the guitar when he was seven. Among his teachers were the influential Brazilian guitarist Isaias Savio and Andrés Segovia. While still a child, he was performing in public and he made his recording debut when he was just 12. He first toured the United States in 1967, and during 1971-1972 Barbosa-Lima performed in London and New York, gaining a worldwide reputation. Barbosa-Lima’s tasteful yet virtuosic control of the guitar has resulted in consistently delightful solo recitals for Concord Concerto that appeal to a wide audience. See Carlos Barbosa-Lima with Larry Del Casale and Nanny Assis at the Jazz Forum!
