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.

Airto does the percussion, famous Ron Carter on the bass, Flora Purim off-course on vocals, but the magical notes are coming this time especially from Hermeto en Sivuca. Impressive!
