This book investigates the musical elements that define the style of guitarist Toninho Horta, focusing on his harmonic conception. My methodology consisted of transcriptions and analyses of recordings from three albums: Diamond Land (1988), Moonstone (1989) and Once I Loved (1992). Horta uses unorthodox chord extensions and voicings, along with inventive voice leading choices for common progressions, characterizing a sophisticated harmonic conception. Observations about his rhythmic approach to Bossa Nova and interpretative techniques are also featured, providing a full picture of his style.
