O’s Notes: Brazilian pianist Marta Karassawa leads a quintet with Teco Cardoso (fl, t-sax), Sidmar Vieta (t, flugelhorn), Frank Herzberg (b), and Eduardo Nazário (d). There are several guest artists as well, like baritone saxophonist Chico Macedo on “When I’m 58”. We liked the opener “Cama de Gato”, and “Mantra” with vocalizations by Cindy Borgani and Stephanie Borgani. We also enjoyed “Good Vibes” with excellent horn harmonies, the Latin vibe on “Vento Sul”, and “Simple As That” featuring Herzberg.
