Grusin and Ritenour crafted this beautiful CD around Brazilian influences and it pays of big time, in my opinion. The first two songs--Harlequin and Early AM--set the mood and will easily make you fall in love with this CD. These two songs made the top jazz songs on radio in 1985. The rest of the songs are quiet, seductive, melodic: just as Grusin and Ritenour want them to be.

Grusin and Ritenour at their best! A Must Have Jazz album!

"Romantic, exotic, intoxicating jazz fusion, quite a few tracks with Brazillian overtones courtesy of engineer turn musician/composer/vocalist Ivan Lins. This is not Antonio Carlos Jobim type breezy, wonderful jazz. But more passionate. Lins married a famous Brazillian beauty and she broke his heart! He turned to song writing and became a respected and popular musician. Here, he collaborates with Dave Grusin, Lee Ritenour and their regulars like harvey Mason, Don Grusin(Dave's Brother) etc. Digitally recorded and mastered at Dave's GRP studio, it sounds good, off course, like ALL GRP recordings. Early AM attitude is the most popular track on this disc. Composed by Grusin, you might have heard it before on radio etc. But the Entire disc is excellant. Ritenour also wrote a few tarck. Lins wrote 3 and sings as well(in Brazillian, though he does sing in English in his subsequent albums). This CD is worth every penny and is a MUST have!"
