“Few musicians in the world today can boast a career that reflects a lifetime of accomplishments as diverse, rich and acclaimed as those Oscar Castro Neves has achieved. Renowned as a composer and arranger for his sophisticated harmonic concepts and the exquisite texture and color of his orchestrations, he is equally well known for his distinctive guitar style and as an accomplished record producer who has worked with dozens of major artists in a wide range of jazz, popular, Brazilian and classical idioms.

Famed jazz critic Leonard Feather wrote of Oscar, “The crystalline beauty of his arrangements is matched by the rare delicacy with which they are interpreted. Oscar Castro Neves is incapable of creating a dull moment, but that is an understatement: He is only capable of generating rhythmic, harmonic and melodic joy.”

These two first paragraphs were taken from official Oscar Castro Neves website, since I could not make a better introduction to this post, that brings Oscar Castro Neves and Paul Winter on Oscar’s 1987 album titled Oscar!

This is Oscar Castro Neves – Oscar! (1987), for Columbia.
