The brilliant Mason Williams is the recipient of a plethora of entertainment industry honors, including several Grammy Awards, multiple Emmys and Writers Guild Awards, honorary doctorates, and gold records. This collection presents one of the world's most revered musical artists interpreting Mason Williams' always interesting, entertaining and enlightening compositions. Classical Gas, of course, is Mason Williams' renowned masterpiece. It topped all three music industry charts: Billboard, Cash Box and Record World in 1968 and garnered Grammys for Best Instrumental Composition, Best Instrumental Performance and Best Instrumental Arrangement. The original recording has been broadcast over six million times. Its television show appearances alone are legion: from The Simpsons to The Sopranos. Barbosa-Lima creates the most insightful and unique arrangement ever. -- Jim Carlton One couldn't seriously be interested in the exponents of great classical guitarists & arrangers without encountering the amazing work of Carlos Barbosa-Lima. He is considered the best of the best in both categories.For him to arrange and record a full album of my compositions is beyond my wildest dreams, but it's a wildest dream come true! The tunes you write are like children you've sent out into the world that come back to you. They reflect the myriad experiences they have had but are transformed by them. They are recognizable & yet have become something surprisingly unique on their own. Carlos is considered by those in the know as a genius and an artistic advocate, if you will, of musical compositions and someone who creates magnificent guitar transcriptions and truly vivid arrangements. Moreover, he has bestowed that genius on the artistry of Gershwin, Ellington, Scott Joplin, Dave Brubeck, Lennon & McCartney & others; so for me to be included among those extraordinary composers is an honor I would never have even imagined possible. -- Mason Williams
