CD Reviews

George Duke...He's the best because he's himself
Fred McGhee | Austin, TX | 01/03/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Who were the pop, funk, jazz, or rock musicians playing IN BRAZIL with BRAZILIAN musicians in the late 1970's and early 1980's? The list isn't that extensive, but you have to put George Duke up there on that list. This album is outstanding from end to end. The improvisation is super tight, the songwriting is excellent, the overall playing is impressive, and the spiritual vibe of this project is simply lovely. A true "labor of love" that works spectacularly well over twenty-years later.Bravo George!"
25 years of listening to this album, and I still love it.

"I bought this record in my hometown of Copenhagen when I was about 12 or 13 years of age. Ever since then, it's had a special place in my heart, an I never get tired of listening to it. I'm glad to see that it's been rediscovered as a classic, (eps. after years of friends telling me it was a cheezy record -- before jazz, funk, and latin became mainstream in the clubs again ;) The keyboard solos on this record are mind blowingly melodic, and some of the meanest funkyist trombone you'll ever hear is on this record. But the bass playing tops it all. If you are a bass player, this record is a must; a brilliant example of how to be funky, melodic, and totally unique and innovative with every note played. Funkier than anyone who ever thumbed or slapped a bass string. (I believe it's Byron Miller...?)"
A classic of happy rhythm for the next century

"Whenever I want to feel GOOD, I play this album. No matter how depressed I'm feeling, withing 10 minutes I'm singing and dancing! Although recorded in the seventies, this album should be a listening classic of Brazilian music for the next century. Smooth, happy sounds with that inimitable George Duke touch of originality and quality."
