Dora Farias.

Unusual,strong way of expression.
The CD is very impressive.I think only people who have the ability to play freely, will know how powerfull this is.A very unique combination of rhythm and fusion.

Danyelle Farias

Incredibly talented with words expressed in song.
The Cd was a demonstration of words of people which are mostly not spoken. I think the music is very unique and different but can reach to many audiences from old to young even people all over the world. Overall the Cd was very impressive and instrumentally over powering.

Andrea Davis

This is an authentic Brazilian song
This CD is a fantastic combination of the native Brazilian rhythmus and good jazz.

Speed, cords, improvisational, fusion ...
This CD is a great musical achievement. The CD is full of hard to duplicate cords, uncomparable speed and improvisational ability that i haven't seen anywhere else.
