Album Description
Featuring: Charlie Rouse, Ron Carter, Bernard Purdie, Claudio Roditi, Dom Salvador, Amaury Tristao Brazil possesses one of the richest musical cultures in the world. Musica Popular Brasileira, its highly sophisticated pop music, is a potent, sensuous melange of historical influences.

Underrated gem

His goal on this recording was to bring the most creative musical minds of Brazil and New York together in whirlwind of mind blowing jazz. He pulled off his goal with his trademark solos he made famous as the forgotten sax player in Monks latter Quartet. A highly recommended slice of Bossa Nova twinged music. Buy it and give it a spin. In time you will find it will grow on you."
