Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Toots Thielemans - The Brasil Project (1992)
BRAZIL WEEK (FEBRUARY 4-10, 2013)
I've always enjoyed the harmonica playing of Toots Thielemans when he has performed on other people's records, so when I saw this collaborative CD in a used bin, I picked it up. I was disappointed. It's an all-star cast for sure, but this disc is hit-or-miss with far more miss than hit. Too many ballads for my taste. This disc was quickly followed up with a sequel. Ima pass on that one.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Tracks: For me, the only tracks that are worth repeated listenings are Obi, Felicia And Bianca, and Manhã De Carnaval.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None
