It was with great satisfaction that I listened to Jorge Shy’s “Crossing Path” and that reveals from the begining the quality of this musician.Very sofisticated melodic and harmonically and has a great control over his instrument and could easily go from “Barney Kessel’ to “Eric Clapton” with an amazing grace.

Beyond the notes, the choices proposed by him are alaways unrevealed , surprising and inventive a characteristic of a musician that has great sensibility and a fine guitar player and composer. Salve Jorge !

“Carneiros Alados” follows with this regal mystery, recalling the sweeping songscapes of Miles Davis’ collaborations with Gil Evans. Shy’s opening, so full of portent, then suddenly gives way to something altogether different, as if the morning sun has suddenly broken through a roiling dark storm cloud. Flo and Milan bolster things with a series of incisive rhythmic flourishes, giving Shy the perfect platform for an exploration into the joy that follows our darkest moments. Crossing Path, though it might have been scripted better for having included Milan and Flo more judiciously throughout, ends then as it should: with Shy again combining a series of competing ideas, concepts and textures to brilliant effect.

It was a pleasure having Jorge in my classes and having known him. I am sure he will succeed in any endeavour he undertakes.[

His Music inspires and his guitar playing a mix of Beck, Clapton, Metheny and Scofield with a latin twist.

Shy’s direct or indirect American influences include, among others, Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, Jim Hall, John McLaughlin and Al DiMeola, while his direct or indirect Brazilian influences include Laurindo Almeida, João Gilberto, Dori Caymmi, Oscar Castro-Neves and Toninho Horta. One hears a lot of Metheny in Shy’s guitar playing and composing: there is no shortage of Metheny influence on “Farewell to Michael,” “Berlin Night,” “Campana” or “Capela Santo Antonio.

The tracks and roads traveled by the sounds of Shy break the sound barriers defined by the aesthetics proposed. Crossing Path is the look of someone who likes to search and discover new sounds, that’s how Jorge Shy is and his delicate and sophisticated approach to his music.

I met Jorge when i played with him in the “Herois da Resistência”, he had only 18 years old and was a talented guitar player that brought the perfect influence of that “British Rock style” to the band. Few years later I got a call from Jorge saying he was moving to the US to refine his music. I was glad to hear that because I always knew his willing and determination to perfect his craft. Today, Jorge is a complete musician, great composer and one of the finest guitarists in Brazil.
