Synopsis

Product Description
Brazilian-born Purim is one of the most influential jazz singers of the 1970s and beyond. She moved to the United States in the late 60s with her husband, master percussionist Airto Moreira and after working with Stan Getz and Duke Pearson joined Chick Corea in his fusion super-group Return To Forever where she was the voice on the seminal Light As A Feather LP. She then signed a solo deal with Mainstream Records, where she recorded a string of critically-acclaimed albums that cemented her reputation. Stories To Tell was her second album for the Milestone label, made in 1974, which featured a heavyweight line-up from the fusion world that included Weather Report's Miroslav Vitous, George Duke, Earl Klugh and her husband. The song choice highlights her love for Brazilian music with great renditions of Vera Cruz and Casa Forte.
