Format : CD

Joining Mueller on his “maiden voyage” recording as a leader are the two premier players of their instruments in jazz and world music – Hancock’s former Miles Davis rhythm section mate Ron Carter, and the iconic Brazilian drummer Portinho, in whose exciting trio the pianist regularly performs. The pair’s participation on the date, contributing engaging solos and a sophisticated rhythmic foundation to the pianist’s original compositions and his interpretations of two Brazilian classics, a bolero, and Carter’s own Einbahnstrasse, is a ringing recognition of their younger colleague’s ever growing stature in the world of music.” – Russ Musto / The New York City Jazz Record

“The New York-based Brazilian bassist has a dynamic rhythmic sense that is deeply rooted in the samba. On songs like Meu Rio, Cerro, O Voo da Mosca and Chorinho pro Cidinho, Itaiguara delivers muscular beauty, running both tender and explosive lines. The music flowers early and continues to open until the end.” – Marc Myers, Wall Street Journal contributor.

Harry Allen´s celebration of the intermingling of Brazilian music and jazz is immersed in this remarkable era of multicultural pluralism – not only blending the jazz of two Americas, but combining the South American songbook with North American pop songs and show tunes (in the spirit of the Sinatra – Jobim collaborations, which set the songs of Cole Porter and Irving Berlin to a bossa beat).
