more about the music
This record gives you a taste of Brazilian vitality and sun enjoy!
The Lyrics by Fausto Israel are dealing with the poetic moments in life.
Stories about music that leads you ibto the past, impressions of daces in
Brazilian backyards and even an ironic love song for a dishwasher.
Percussionist Chris Gavazzoni (another Brazilian) and Martin Simon (bass)
lay the foundation for the wonderful songs and the melodic solos by
saxophone player Olaf Schoenborn.
