EGBERTO GISMONTI

Čuveni Brazilski kompozitor, pijanista i gitarista Egberto Gismonti u svetu je poznat po neobičnom stilu sviranja na desetožičanoj, dvanaestožičanoj pa čak i na četrnaestožičanoj gitari. Vrat i redo-vi žica na njegovim instrumentima su duplo veći od klasične gitare i gotovo nedostižni za mnoge istaknute gitariste. Već u šestoj godini počinje Gismontijevo petnaestogodišnje školovanje na klaviru, nakon kojeg je u Parizu usavršavao orkestraciju, onda i gitaru. Posle zamene klasične šestožičane za posebno izradjenu desetožičanu gitaru, počinje Žismontijev rad na komponovanju koncerata pod uticajima veoma ekspresivnih gitarista poput Đanga Rajharta i Džimija Hendriksa. Njegov antologijski album „Sanfona” iz 1981. godine svrstao je Žismontija medju autore najboljih džez ploča svih vremena, a njegovo ime ulazi u generaciju najvecih džezera te decenije u kojoj su sa njim najviše isticani i povezivani velikani Kit Džeret, Čik Koria, Vein Šorter ili Pet Metini. Žismonti snima i album „Sol do meio dia”, posvećen Šingu indijancima sa kojima je ovaj Brazilski umetnik živeo jedno vreme u džunglama Amazonije. Opus od 48 samostalnih albuma, 32 izdanja na kojima je radio kao gostujući solista, autor ili producent, uz čak 58 kompozicija za film, televiziju, pozorište i balet, te 17 objavljenih i širom sveta izvođenih koncerata, čine Egberta Žismontija jednim od najistak-nutijih autora današnjice.
