Album Review

Percussionist Airto Moreira, his wife, vocalist Flora Purim, and Joe Farrell (heard on flute, soprano and tenor) had teamed up several times through the years, most notably in the original version of Return to Forever.

Among the others musicians in the quartet/quintet settings are guitarist Jose Neto, pianist Kei Akagi, and bassist Mark Egan. An atmospheric and at times haunting effort.
