O’s Notes: This is a wonderful recording of Brazilian and jazz classics featuring pianist Joveno Santos Neto paired with a wealth of fine musicians. There are two discs, one recording in the US and the other in Brazil. Both benefit from all-star musicians including David Sanchez (sax) on “Aquelas Coisas Todas” and Anat Cohen (sax) on “Veja o Som”. We also enjoyed Mike Marshall (mandolin) on “Santa Morena”; “Nature Boy” with Neto (flute, p) and Joe Locke (vibes); “Cruzando o Sertão” with Luiz Guello (perc); and Ricardo Silveira (g) on “Morro Velho”. There are also masterful moments with Toninho Ferragutti (accordion), Vittor Santos (tb) and Gabriel Grossing (harmonica). We loved the spirit, the variation and the arrangements!
