"Nostalgia" by Hopalong (Classical/Acoustic artist from Mexico)

"Nostalgia" by Hopalong is a delicate and cinematic classical album with jazz and latin undertones. The album lends itself well to movie score as the arrangements play to mood and emotion. The production value is excellent. It's mixed well and sounds great. The arrangements are subtle and appropriate for the concept. The sound is largely based around classical guitar and is "acoustic" for the most part. Highlights include "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?", which features some fine guitar work and smooth trumpet. "Infancia Y Juventud" features a nice guitar progression and heartfelt solo violin. "You Must Believe in Spring" is bluesy with great electric guitar work. If you enjoy beautiful instrumental music, or are looking for soothing music to give you a pleasant background as you work, you'll enjoy this CD.
