A Brazilian jazz keyboard masterpiece – a set you can put right up there next to
the earliest records by Azymuth, even though this one's much more obscure! Keyboardist Marcos Resende never hit the kind of fame he deserved, but that also allowed him to
be one of the most creative players on his scene – as he never had to
go for crossover fusion material, and instead was able to
let loose in amazing ways on a record like this – blending work on Fender Rhodes with other keyboards – in a quartet that features Rubao Sabino on bass, Claudio Caribe on drums, and Oberdan Magalhaes on tenor, soprano sax, and flute! The mix of reeds and keys is wonderful – spun out freel
y, but always with a strong sense of rhythm – that soaring, joyous approach to
jazz that makes the best Brazilian albums of the period so wonderful. Titles include "Behind The Moon", "Martinha", "Nina Nenem", "My Heart", "Nergal", and "Praca De Alegria".
