The idea behind the record was to break the traditional Bossa trio mould and create instead a harder edged Jazz and bossa sound that allowed for more soloing and improvisation.

The result is a stone-cold classic bossa title and an essential album for all Brazilian music fans (we promise). The album includes classics such as Kenya, Nana, Consolacao and Berimbau.
