Horta, Toninho and Nicola Stilo, Duets
Brazilian guitarist Toninho Horta and Italian flautist Nicola Stilo each bring the fruits of their impressive musical careers to blossom on “Duets,” the highly anticipated US debut of this out of print 1999 recording. Best known for his work with Chet Baker, Nicola Stilo has, in the course of his 30-year-long career, performed and recorded with a panoply of the world’s most popular jazz and pop artists, and has also earned considerable critical acclaim for his own musical projects. Arranger, songwriter and sparkling instrumentalist Toninho Horta has performed with such legendary Brazilian musicians as Milton Nascimento, Airto Moreira and Flora Purim, Gal Costa, and Elis Regina, and has recorded ten solo albums. “Duets” captures these two stellar musicians in an intimate setting, performing both original material as well as some true standards.
