Long time ago, in an era that every town had it’s own recordstore and none of them were alike, i’ve found a double album of Airto in the sales bins of the recordstore “Elpee” in Arnhem. I’ve bought it because it was really cheap and I had some other albums in “The Essential…” series, not knowing what beautiful music this was. Since then this music finds itself regularly on my turntable. <!– WriteFlash('’); //–> Airto does the percussion, famous Ron Carter on the bass, Flora Purim offcourse on vocals, but the magical notes are coming especially from Hermeto en Sivuca. Impressive!
