Nilson Matta's got plenty of great musical friends in this world – and thankfully, a good number of them showed up in the studio to help him with this batch of Brazilian-tinged jazz tunes! The record's overflowing with great contributions from a lineup of players that includes Brazilian artists Rosa Passos, Ivan Lins
, Joyce, Joao Bosco, Mauricio Einhorn, and Duduka Da Fonseca – as well as American jazzmen Kenny Barron, Harry Allen, and Jeff Tain Watts – and throughout it all, Nilson's at the helm, working in round, warm acoustic basslines that tie together the talents and styles present on the record. Most arrangements are by Matta, but Ivan Lins
, Joyce, and Joao Bosco helped out a bit too – and titles include "Nana", "Berimbau", "Night & Day", "Creek", "Samba Sem Voce", "Jade", "Perfume De Cebola", and "I Only Have Eyes For You", sung in English by Joyce!
