Indeed, composer-vocalist Holz bares it all......So, soothing, so smooth & simple, yet so profound & forthcoming. Latinos 'speak' through their music, certainly Fernando speaks to us so beautifully through his. I can't help compare Fernando's efforts to the great 'Jobim.' I don't draw this adjunct to lessen the musical impact one enjoys from this wonderful disc, rather to put it into the category of music that is paramount. Holz's addition of strings as well to the CD gives his efforts something that transcends the intangible, raising what he creates for his listeners more to the level of pure art. Folks, this is the real deal!!
