Customer Reviews

World of Brazil

Lighten up guys. And lighten your pockets a little as well. Yes this CD is light, but I bought it and find it refreshing and serviceable. Mainly because it includes some great Brazilian artists singing over the riffs laid down by Lee Ritenour. Just imagine this scene. Sitting on Ipanema, IPod headphones in ear, caipirinha in hand and 98 degrees. Ahhh.....the samba floating in the summer breeze. Bem Vindo a Rio de Janeiro. The first caiparinhas on me. That's what this CD is all about.

Great Album

I really don't see why this album recieved such low ratings. In my oppinion, every song on here is worth listening to, even if Stone Flower is the most complex and jazzy. "Voce e Linda" is a heartfelt love song that is absolutely breathtaking and heartwrenching to listen to, "Latin Lovers" is a funky Brazzillan samba that is perfect for parties or other danceable occasions, Dindi is a sweet love song with great vocals...anyways, my point is that even though this album might not be entirely smooth jazz, it's fantastic music regardless.

Jazz labels are their own worst enemy

It bugs me that in order to purchase what is far and away the best cut here ("Stone Flower") you have to buy the whole album. Lengthier tracks are often the best on jazz albums, but this same short-sighted policy is instituted for too many releases on iTunes. Once again, you're missing out on my 99 cents. A suggestion: Why not charge a little more - say $1.25 - for the longer tracks? Hey Anonymous - Here's a review for you: This album is mostly smooth-jazz drivel by an underachieving artist who only lives up to his potential on the overpriced tune "Stone Flower," largely because Herbie Hancock pushes his limits. Where's your review?
