"I was shocked to read the review by "someone" from Toronto. I am pretty sure he does not understand either jazz or Brazilian music. Blanchard does a good enough job with the music of Ivan Lins, and I can hear this CD over and over. Please do not pay attention to the review I am refering to, BUT TO THE MUSIC in the CD, you will enjoy it very much.Other efforts by Blanchard are very good, but I prefer him working is small groups (quartets, quintets). He is an excellent performer, composer, and arranger, however, under the shadow of fellow trumpeter from New Orleans,Wynton Marsalis."

"I was a bit late on the Terence Blanchard bangwagon, but now that I'm here...I'll be staying on! This album is VERY nice and it wasn't until I actually paid attention to my, 'Mo' Better Blues' soundtrack notes that I saw that he had his hand in that work. This CD combines that smooth Terence way with the sensual unpinnings of music from Brazil. My favorite, "Antes Que Seja Tarde" meaning "Before it's too late" speaks to the people of Brazil and what they need to do to make a brighter furture there, simply sweet! This is one of the few CD's that I have that no particular programming is needed. I put this one in and press play! Terence has paid homage to a musical style and group of people that truly touches ones heart! The heart TRULY does speak and says......go get this one!"
Why? This is good.

"Lush,sensual and at the same this make you feel calm and contemplative.Blanchard is brilliant!Listen to his tone and articulation.Delicate and smooth.And especially in slow tracks his merit is throughly exemplified.He chose not to waste too many notes,sticking to his beautiful long tones more than usual.And this album contains many slow tracks.You will be immersed in his tonal magic in this ideal setting.Oscar Castro-Neves plays the guitar in some tracks.Paulinho Da Costa is in the band,too."
