It is amazing the bridge established between Brazil and United States in both directions at the golden age of Bossa Nova in the 60’s. Yesterday, we had an album recorded in Brazil by Herbie Mann, today we close the roundtrip showing an LP recorded in the United States featuring Brazilian musicians and repertoire.

This is Paul Desmond – From the Hot Afternoon (1969), for A&M, featuring a repertoire with Milton Nascimento, Edu Lobo (guitar) and Airto Moreira (drums). Edu Lobo presents four songs in this album and is accompanied by his wife at that time, Wanda de Sa. Orchestral arrangements are by Don Sebesky. The early Milton Nascimento compositions makes the difference in this album considered by Caetano Rodrigues, as “Muuuuuuito Bom” in that unique way Caetano uses to say when an album is above the average. Thanks for this nice one, Caetano. Tracks include:
