+ 1/2 stars...World Music from Guitarist Larry Coryell

"Two years before the release of Paul Simon's GRACELAND and the accompanying increase in awareness of world music, Larry Coryell travelled to Brazil and created this low-key recording in Brazil, which features many native performers--including vocalist Dori Caymmi who is featured on several cuts. Coryell is backed by a 9-piece band, including drummer Billy Cobham (who worked with Miles Davis and John McLaughlin) and saxophonist Donald Harrison, who should have gotten co-billing on this CD in that he has has many solos as Coryell himself. Overall, this is a fairly laid back affair. Coryell does a nice job of blending the local musical influences, but except for the 9-minute "Vera Cruz" that closes the album, the music seldon catches fire. Instead, it too often becomes little more than pleasant mood music."
Coryell - Live From Bahia

"If you like Brazilian Jazz this is a great CD to listen to. And if you also like Coryell - this is one of his most consistent and well done recordings! A+++++++++++ The Video of the live concert version is also a must to have!"
