The absolute holy grail recording for Brazilian jazz, this long out of print album is a must for any lover of Brazilian folk music, Samba, and Jazz from Brazil. A super-group of musicians who would bring the music of Brazil to a world-wide audience in the years to come, this recording documents the beginning of the careers of Airto Moreira - percussionist with Miles Davis and Chick Corea, and Husband and main collaborator to Brazilian vocalist Flora Purim-; Hermeto Pascoal - Multi-instrumentalist/Composer and side man with such notable musicians as Miles Davis(who called Pascoal his most important influence), Cal Tjader, Egberto Gismonte and Donald Byrd among others; Heraldo Do Monte, one of Brazil's most famed masters of the guitar; and Theo De Barres, renowned bassist and guitarist.
This extremely important album was one of the earliest to mix influences from traditional Brazilian folk forms with Jazz sensibilities. It is also credited as one of the first Brazilian albums to feature compositions using odd time signatures in a Samba feel.
Out of print since the mid 70's, it has recently been re-issued to the south american market. Still hard to find, but well worth the trouble.
