Strange and wonderful work from one of our favorite Brazilian artists – and a set that's put together with all the best complications of Egberto Gismonti's early years! The record is one of Gismonti's last true works of genius – and it hearkens back to the sound and style used on some of his earlier EMI albums, with interweaving guitar, piano, strings, and odd assorted sounds, all coming together in an incredibly hard to describe melange – but one that's filled with emotion, soul, and rich imagination! A few tracks have a nice jazzy groove, and others have a darkly serious edge – and together, they take the whole thing way past the simpler sound of his later ECM recordings. Titles include "Ta Boa Santa?", "Palhaco", "Magico", "Karate", and "Equilibrista". Fantastic!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
