Bought this when I was really into Fusion and didn't care much for Brazilian styles. Now I'm really into Bossanova etc but couldn't care less about Fusion. I still like about half the album. If you are either way inclined and have an open mind you should get something out of this album. Wouldn't pay much more than £5 though.
