Album Notes

"The first time I got off the plane in Brazil back in 1992, I felt like I was home. The Brazilians are fantastic people that have always treated me like one of their own. They are a musical people by culture and the musicians are... well you'll hear for yourself." Todd Murphy, São Paulo, Brazil.
