CD Reviews

Jazz "for export" from Uruguay, one step ahead of his time
Jorge MVD | Montevideo, Uruguay | 02/20/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, Music from Uruguay to the world. if you want to hear "first class latin jazz", buy this CD. It's a classic of the uruguayan music. You can feel the fresh air of Montevideo in your head, while the CD run!!!!
The Fattorusso brothers give lessons of fussion. Great work of Airto too, and Ruben Rada, of course, in percussion..."
If you love Return to Forever...
D | Cincinnati, OH United States | 09/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is explosive. There's not much more to say. I'm a bit of a romantic, so my favorite track is "Paper Butterflies [Muy Lejos Te Vas]", with its delicate vocals and whispering flute (played by the noted Hermeto Pascoal). I may be biased, though, since my wife is a talented flautist herself. The guest appearances on these two albums (combined for reissue on one disc) read like a who's who in Latin jazz-fusion: the aforementioned Hermeto Pascoal, David Amaro (guitars), Airto Moreira (percussion and production) and Flora Purim (vocals on "Arise").
In some cases this music is sentimental, in others it's a bit hokey, but it is always inspired. The Fattoruso brothers have been too overlooked in the jazz community. I purchased this album because of Airto, but came to love it because of Hugo and George Fattoruso.
So, if you like the early, more Latin-tinged fusion of Chick Corea's Return to Forever (think the "Return to Forever" album and "Light as a Feather"), then you'll indeed love this."
Timeless musical magic

"I listened, with my very best friends, to these records over and over..wore 'em out. I was so very pleased to see that these records, and both of them i might add, have been re-released on 1 cd. Airto, Ruben Rada, the Fattoruso brothers, Airto's wife Flora, Ringo Theilman.....something about this music and this group of musicians touches me so deeply i can't really put words to it..i wish i could. I can only highly recommend buying and listening to these folks."
