I'm so proud of my nephew, Kevin:

After more than forty years of musical symbiosis and of stage shared with his brother Sergio, Odair Assad records his first solo album! 

And one of my nephew's original composition for guitar, Red Fantasy, is featured on Odair Assad's solo album!

New compositions follow one another, written by Leo Brouwer, Egberto Gismonti, Sergio Assad, Kevin Callahan and Roland Dyens. Discover them now on GHA’s web site

A big step for the soloist; a big step for the guitar!

Here's a link to a YouTube site where you can listen to Kevin play another one of his compositions, "The Riverbed" from his suite, "Three River Moments."

I look forward to hearing a little of both. I enjoy classical guitar a whole bunch.

WOW! I listened to Kevin's music here:

Although I'd never heard of him until now (nor the Assad brothers), frankly I prefer his music to that of the Assad Brothers.

Kevin's is much more soothing.

Your pride is certainly justified.

Congratulations Shaw to both Kevin and you!

It's so heartening when a family member "makes it"!

Great stuff!
