Album Notes
This is our ninth CD and it is being released in the year of our twentieth anniversary. The CD is a travelogue of sorts, containing music we picked up on tour around Latin and South America and in the US. Several of the pices on this disc were commissioned for our visit to the Subtropics Festival in Miami - a city that is a great crossroads of Latin culture - in 1997. Other pieces we collected in foreign places or from friends we made in those places. We have brought all this music to our home base, New York, another cross-cultural gathering place. And now to listeners wherever they may be. Timbrando is Portuguese for \'making a tone\' or \'sounding\' (it is related to the word \'timbre\').

A NOTE ABOUT THE PRICE: because this album is a hybrid SACD and is able to play on conventional equipment as well as SACD equipment, our price for this album is very high. We\'re doing our absolute best to keep the price as low as possible and hope that the incredible sound quality that Channel Classics gets offsets the more-than-usual price for you.

It's a festive thrill to hear a new MAE cd. The guys have a knack to make the hardest tunes seem easy and to play the tunes that seem easy with masterful precision. Bouncing highly modern complicated patterns on an intricate tile floor of tradition, they demonstrate that it's possible to be so very talented and utterly devoted and still have all the fun in the world. Successful in their individual careers, they're as addicted to the Meridian sound as we are.
