Various Artists: The Music of Portugal

The “Rough Guide” series takes its musical travel aid mission seriously, being rooted in an organization that also produces travel books and musical reference books. The Music of Portugal (RGNT 1025; 70:12) does a fine job of musical sampling in its point of reference. The disc leaves a strong impression, with its coherence of mood and idiom, including the coolly passionate fado intensity of Carlos Paredes.
