Album Notes
How Do You Keep The Music Playing is Paulinho's 20th CD and his 5th as solo artist. It features songs from various countries in Brazilian, Jazz and Latin styles, as well Paulinho's own compositions, a good representation of his 55+ years of music.

Garcia’s acoustic guitar and vocals have a beautiful earthiness and humility to it. I really enjoyed the scat singing and vocal percussion in TAKE FIVE. BOLERO DE SATA is so captivating and vulnerable, but EMBRACEABLE YOU must be one of my favourites. The beauty and emotion in this piece is unbelievable: the vocals so gentle and honest, the strumming of the guitar mesmerizing. Superb performance!...Wouter Kellerman - musician

 "...He becomes the epitome of the solitary troubadour - a romantic figure hardly visible anymore even in Brazil, where, like everywhere else, popular music has grown busier, louder, and rougher. Garcia's voice, an airy baritone, has less shadow and a bit more energy than Joao Gilberto's and his languid chords and cleanly plucked lines illuminate the complicated rhythms with the cool clarity of moonlight... " Neil Tesser jazz journalist and author of "The Playboy Guide To Jazz”

Paulinho Garcia phrases with something bordering on genius and plays a wonderful guitar.
Raul Da Gama, World Music Report

No language barrier when it comes to love – Paulinho translates the emotion beautifully.
Bob Morello, Post-Gazette (Boston)

The world of music needs more understated, beautiful music from the likes of Paulinho Garcia. There are far too many shouters, overly-loud musicians who all seem to be attempting to out-perform each other... I love nothing more than to hear someone like him, a breath of fresh air... Ray Alexander, (UMFM, Winnipeg, Canada)

Music that makes you take a deep sigh... Marc Myers, Jazz Wax

Paulinho's CD is very close, personal, intimate... It captured the beauty of simplicity. ... John Clayton

Remarkably a recording that goes on for some fifteen songs does not feel boring for even a moment. This is probably because Mr. Garcia brings something new to each song. Raul Da Gama, theworldmusicreport.com

(...Paulinho ought to be considered a Chicago treasure... Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune and LA Times)
