Album Review

This is Purim's first album for Warner Bros. after spending 1973-1976 with Milestone. While Purim's last dates with Milestone began to reflect a more commercial jazz sound, the style came to fruition by the time of this 1977 album. Drummer Leon "Ndugu" Chancler is listed as producer, and George Duke is also here, under his alias of Dawili Gonga. Given that fact, this effort sounds like a Duke production job, and like one of his late-'70s classic albums. Patrice Rushen's meditative "You Love Me Only" strikes the delicate balance between Purim's singular phrasing and persona and more streamlined production values. Earth Wind and Fire members Al McKay and Phillip Bailey contribute "Angels," and it has the sound of period EWF juxtaposed to Purim's patented and sensual wordless vocalizations. Although the artist adapts to each style, Nothing Will Be As It Was...Tommorow also has her covering the work of Brazilian artist Milton Nascimento, who co-wrote the title. Nascimento's whimsical "Fairy Tale Friend" gets a funkier treatment, as the song's lyrics lose nothing in translation. The album's most poignant track from Nascimento, "Bridges," has a doleful arrangement and a gentle vocal from Purim. Although this effort seemed to get lost in the shuffle, it is well worth seeking out, especially for lovers of late-'70s jazz fusion.

Classic

This was an album I was waiting to come out on CD. This is Flora Purim at her best. In my opinion, she hasn't made a bad album but this is her definitive sound how it should be. Patrice Rushen proves she is an excellent keyboard player and songwriter. Just a damn good band altogether.

Tomorrow or Today Fantastic album

I wore out my vinyl copy of this album years ago and wanted a CD so bad that I spent $30 for a Japanese copy I found before it was released here. Some of the most beautiful music out there. Sensuous, exciting, relaxing, energizing, (and that's just the first cut) what more could you want? Do yourself a favor and get this music!

Finally

At last, the definitive Flora Purim album! I've been waiting for "Angels" on CD since the 70's, that's not a misprint, Angels came out on 8" vinyl in the 70s (I forget the exact year)....

Influenced by both traditional Brazilian singers and the improvisations of American jazz divas like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, Flora Purim was one of the most adventurous singers of the 1970s. After meeting and marrying her husband, percussionist Airto Moreira, in their native Brazil, Purim moved with him to the U.S. in the late '60s. Though she worked with Stan Getz and pianist Duke Pearson before the decade ended, it wasn't until joining Chick Corea, Joe Farrell, Stanley Clarke, and Moreira...
