"I first heard Brazilian music in 1956 when I was with the Dizzy Gillespie big band. Jon has captured the depth of this genre on this work. I felt much the same passion as I felt back then when first listened to it. Bravo!"
Phil Woods, Multi-Grammy Award Winning and Legendary Saxophonist
“Intricate arrangements with a lively sense of rhythm, this recording of Jon Gold's music is attractive and full of a palpable joie de vivre. You will be entertained for sure.”
Dave Liebman, NEA Jazz Master and legendary saxophonist

”...It’s fascinating, all of it -- compelling because Jon Gold presents a musical imagination that has been inspired by the culture of Brazil without superficially attempting to imitate it. And that’s a true rarity.” Don Heckman (jazz critic for Los Angeles Times)
