Delight... The only word which came to mind after first listening of this album. Music have it's power - to cure heartaches and sadness, to make unverbal listeanble and to make You happy when You forget about existense of such word, it's meaning and how does it feels. For sure «Jazz Samba» by Stan Getz/Charlie Byrd was in each jukebox in 60ies, 70ies, 80ies, 90ies and so on... I do like that album and always was looking for some more like this, but with a bit more natural sound - not just good artifical mix of cool jazz and latin samba - but something closer to brazilian roots. This album by Baden Powell have it as forte. Percussion section strong and colorite. Powell's version of 'Round about Midnight might be the one of the best ever performed. Invencao Em 7 1/2 strongly reminds me some of Bach's works for lute or his inventions for 2 voices, but I can not remember number of opus. Balance of traditional, classical and jazz ingredients on this records is equal to golden section. It's 1.00 am in Moscow, about zero C, first sparkling white flakes of show covering all naked crowns of the trees, but my soul under gold-orange sun dancing with barefoot girls on hot sand somewhere near warm ocean.
