This beautiful blend of melodies and rhythm indeed gives an enchanting “taste of Brazil.” Guitarist Nonato Luiz, percussionist Djalma Corrêa, and bassist Luiz Alves are artists of tremendous sophistication and range who are also rooted in the rich musical traditions of their homeland. Their extended homage to the beloved and influential composer Luiz Gonzaga sets the “northeastern” tone for the rest of the album, which features mostly material by Nonato Luiz. Joining the group on two tracks apiece are flutist Mauro Senise and vocalist Clarisse Grova.
