Sérgio Assad (born 26 December 1952) is a Brazilian guitarist, composer, and arranger who often performs with his brother, Odair Assad in the guitar duo Sérgio and Odair Assad, commonly referred to as Assad Brothers or Duo Assad. Their younger sister Badi Assad, is also a guitarist. Sérgio is the father of ist Clarice Assad. He is married to Angela Olinto.
The Assad brothers, who first encountered Astor Piazzolla as young music students in Rio de Janeiro in the 1970s, capture the venerable composer’s trademark bristling rhythms and sweeping melodies on tracks such as the Piazzolla classics Tango Suite, written especially for the Assads, and Suite Troileana. Sérgio and Odair Assad dedicate this recording to Astor, a close friend of theirs until his death in 1992. Described as having a supple, flawlessly unified sound by the New York Times, Sérgio and Odair Assad began playing guitar together as young boys, encouraged by their father, a mandolin player. By the time they were teenagers, their prowess brought them to Rio de Janeiro and study with Monina Tavora, a student of Segovia.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). I did not and was instead very pleasantly surprised. This CD bears some comparison to Al DiMeola's Plays Piazzolla album. Both are great albums, but the Assads concentrate more on fidelity to the spirit of the compositions and are less given to experimental wanderings than Di Meola. Its hard to argue with the choice of music played here.
The album finishes up with Bordel 1900, part of the History of Tango suite, and Fracanapa. The music is performed in large part solely with the duo of guitars, though some percussion and a violin necessarily make appearances from song to song. It's a nice, if somewhat bare, rendition of the Piazzolla catalog. The guitars sit in an acoustic setting playing mostly off one another. It's a generally soft sound, pulling the lighter emotions carefully. Only in spurts do the Assads pick up the rhythms and dissonance that so define Piazzolla's work. When they do, it shines musically
