At last! Here are Paolo Bellinati’s long-awaited solo guitar arrangements of 10 of the 12 compositions featured on the Mel Bay Publications DVD, Paulo Bellinati Plays Antonio Carlos Jobim (99725DVD). Written in standard notation only with brief performance notes for each piece, these arrangements would best be approached by the intermediate to advanced classic guitarist.

In this collection, masterful Brazilian guitarist Paolo Bellinati has meticulously transcribed his solo guitar arrangements of ten melodies by his beloved countryman and pioneering bossa nova composer, Antonio Carlos Jobim. Bellinati particularly labored over his arrangements of Jobim’s instrumental compositions, i.e., songs without lyrics as these “reveal a much more sophisticated Jobim, closer to his favorite classical composers…”

The book also contains arrangements of lyrical songs “of a more introspective and romantic character,” including “Luiza” which Bellinati regards as “the most beautiful and perfect Brazilian song ever written.

The book also includes substantial biographies of both the author/arranger and the composer, plus a notation key illuminating the special techniques needed to effectively render these arrangements- all lending additional insight to the music itself.
