Burnside Album Details

de Holanda, Hamilton, intimo

I intended to record this album on the road using technology which favors music (a good microphone, my laptop and an M-box). The concept has to do with a place where our souls can experience the quietness and restfulness – and for me this is that soundtrack. It`s not a mandolin exercise or practice, but simply the enjoyment of playing. I have wanted to record a CD like this for a long time so that I could capture the intimacy of the mandolin, generally reserved for hotel rooms and my home. There are no arrangements, just songs that live in my unconscious. Tom Jobim, Chico Buarque, Edu Lobo, Cartola, Silvio Caldas, Orestes Barbosa, Paulo Jobim, Ronaldo Bastos, Noel Rosa, Vadico, Dorival Caymmi, Guinga & Paulo César Pinheiro and there are 3 of my compositions. –– from the liner notes, Hamilton de Holanda, Rio de Janeiro, November, 2006
