O’s Notes: Drummer Akira Tana brings together a bountiful collection of artists to celebrate the music of Brazil on“Jazzanova. Six vocalists do a fine job singing in English and Brazilian Portuguese. The core band includes guitarist Ricardo Peixoto, Peter Horvath (p), Gary Brown (b) and Michael Spiro (Perc) with Tana. Special guests Branford Marsalis and Arturo Sandoval split saxophone duties. These talented musicians embellish thirteen classics with rich tones and excellent form. You’ll likely keep this CD in your rotation for a while!
