"The follow up to his debut 'Guitarra Portuguesa' (originally released in 1971) is another masterpiece that makes clear how this guitar viruoso got the nickname "the man with a thousand fingers". 'Movimento Perpétuo' shows a more mature Carlos Paredes. His compositions went beyond the traditional use of the instrument in fado musicianship, giving him (and his instrument) a status above folk or regional music. If the tireless playing of his instrument wasn't enough, throughout the entire album one can hear Paredes breathe sharply as he forms his phrases. Breathtaking!" (label info)
