Mr. Romao is the best Brazilian drummer/percussionist ever. A living legend, at 76 he is also becoming a dancefloor star in Europe, after many years doing famous USA jazz dates with Ron Carter, Cannonball Adderley, Yusef Lateef and countless others. Not to mention his playing on the landmark "Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim" album. Oh, and he was also a member of Weather Report during their heyday! This new album features many young Brazilian talents such as Danilo Caymmi, Marcelo Salazar, Paula Faour, Jorge Pescara, Ithamara Koorax and Nani Palmeira. Highly recommended. --an Amazon reviewer
