Reviews"This Brazilian Jazz CD bases most of its content in the beauty of nature; and if on top of that beauty, you add smart/smooth/interesting cuts, and a collaboration with Dori Caymmi, the result will be nothing but fantastic. You will also notice some Caetano Veloso and Hermeto Pascoal influence in Daniel. A 5 star album and a must-have for any Brazilian and Brazilian Jazz aficionados." - Peppino
