After his 1976 debut on ECM, the stunning Danca Das Cabecas with percussionist Naná Vasconcelos, Gismonti returned the following year with this impressive combo outing. Actually, the album consists of a mix of solo pieces and cuts with various partners, in both duo and trio formats. He penned all the material and shines throughout. The guest do the same, with special mention going to guitarist Ralph Towner, percussionist Colin Walcott, tenor saxophonist Jan Garbarek, and Vasconcelos. Highly recommended. © Stephen Cook /TiVo

Egberto Gismonti's profound search for the universal departing from the particular is always an applauded approach. On this album, one can recognize references from several cultures, but that never resembles an opportunistic pastiche. The cello parts (played by Jaques Morelembaum) and some rhythmic motifs (such as the one in Bianca's theme) are reminiscent of Brazilian tradition, especially Heitor Villa Lobos' work (which although is taken with reserves by Gismonti in his spoken speeches, seems to transpire in his music unconsciously). His compositions can be meditative but also reflect the ingenuous happiness of folkloric dances. Tender lyricism again reveals a touch of naïveté balanced with an original perception of the universal patrimony of humankind. His music, even more challenging in the required sensibility for the folk element that is almost always missing in cultivated musicians, finds a proper channel in the passionate delivery of Jaques, Nando Carneiro, Zeca Assumpção, and Gismonti himself. © Alvaro Neder /TiVo
