A Pleasant Surprize
(4 out of 5 stars)

With the ocean in the backround throughout, these two cover an interesting range of material in an informal jam format. Worth buying if you can find it."
There should be more like this...

"This reminds me a little of the Stan Getz-Kenny Barron collaberation: the rhythm being supplied by an instrument other than bass or drums, and the sax free-flowing over top with plenty of space. Recorded in 1978 on a beach, literally for kicks, the effect is beautiful. It is both Live, and incredibly 'present' as well. Oscar Castro-Neves does a wonderful solo rendition of "Bonita" to begin, and then Klemmer arrives on "My Funny Valentine" and the simpatico between both players and surroundings begins in earnest. A truly unique and wonderful recording - and REALLY well mastered for the best sound I ever heard coming from a night at the beach..."
