Australian guitarist Albert Calvo's CDPass It Onbegins with three tunes that fit right in with the current contempo genre. However, a better picture of Calvo's individual talents begins to emerge with cut 4; "Insights" features Calvo improvising thoughtfully on nylon-string acoustic guitar over a background sea of sustained synthesizer chords. Next, "Virtual Samba" rolls along happily with percolating percussion and nice guitar and flute solos. The Brazilian beat continues a la Luis Bonfa or Oscar Castro-Neves on "Yours Forever," followed by the Latin-flavored "Super 60 Strut." Samples of Take 6's signature sound add an interesting dimension to "Calious Groove," as does the full-bodied sound of the Hammond B-3 organ. The CD closes in style with another samba with flute and guitar, "It's Worth the Wait." (Vintage Music)
