Samba for Tarsila is a musical tribute to Tarsila de Aguiar do Amaral (1886-1973), a leading Brazilian modernist painter. Her colorful, vibrant landscapes inspire Sher’s soundscapes in three Sher originals, two Brazilian classics, plus two jazz and pop standards.

One "old school" CD! Great for your 1990's Camry, or dig out your old CD players! They really do sound better than streaming platforms.
Just send me your address and I'll stick one in an envelope and send...old school style, through the mail! The shipping cost is 'on me'!
Ben is a unique jazz guitarist. Fluent in the classic jazz tradition of Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, and George Benson, Ben also draws from the rich Brazilian guitar tradition of Baden Powell, Raphael Rabello and Joao Gilberto. Ben combines standard jazz plectrum technique, with classical fingerstyle, to create a wide range of sounds and textures.
