Release Biography

Guitarist, harmonica player, and whistler Toots Thielemans’ followup to the critically acclaimed Brasil Project doesn’t stray far from its predecessor’s path. There are 13 nice Afro-Latin selections with Thielemans backing such top Brazilian vocalists as Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Ivan Lins, Caetano Veloso, Dori Caymmi, Eliane Elias among others, and guitarists Oscar Castro-Nieves and Lee Ritenour assisting Thielemans with delicate shadings and accompaniment.
