After a lunch break I had to listen to disc 1 of this building block of my musical world. . . 

Miles Davis "Bitches Brew" Mobile Fidelity SACD

And then it was on to this disc which is a fine one. Duduka is such a fantastic drummer--and the berimbau feature here is so flippin' well recorded. And there's Maucha Adnet on hand as well. A killer album of Brazilian jazz.

Duduka Da Fonseca "Samba Jazz Fantasia"



Now onto this one . . .I haven't played this one often enough. I'm going to fix that.

David Sanchez "Sketches of Dreams" Columbia cd

Bass – John Benitez, Larry Grenadier
Claves, Drums – Leon Parker
Congas, Percussion, Maracas – Jerry Gonzalez
Drums – Adam Cruz
Piano – Danilo Perez, Dave Kikoski

Had to squeeze this one into today's listening. "Matita Perê" Antônio Carlos Jobim, Polygram Brazil cd.

I'm not always that big a fan of Ogerman's work with Jobim but there's magic in these orchestrations, and Jobim worked seriously here to create a splendid album. I like his multi-tracked vocals and his singing overall is so heart-felt. One of my favorite albums.



Also released with this cover by Verve:

Back to this disc:


Sonny Rollins - Old Flames (Milestone, 1993)


It sure must be ! 
It is possible that I don´t have all Milestones, since especially in the early 90´s a didn´t have much time for music, I was doin a second job to my main job, was fallin in love with the girl who became my wife....
Now I´m listening more to the live albums, but this here sure is fine, ballads I suppose.
