This is an album that serves the memory of two outstanding musicians who passed away much too soon. The first is Victor Assis Brasil, the legendary young Brazilian saxophonist.

He passed away at age 35 in After this album was released, one of the members of the featured trio passed away. His participation was an addition to the music on many albums. He not only had a dazzling technique, but also a great set of ears. He literally played the instrument for the use of the music he accompanied, something that is extremely well noticeable here of this album.

He composed all the music on this cd. Luiz Avellar on piano improvises perfectly sllo the theme, the bass lines are an absolute delight and the drumming Kiko Freitas is supportive and hunting. What he had in mind at that moment was transposed to assumop instrument immediately.


Sometimes you even have the impression that the instrument is talking on its own, so natural sounds the music; a unique talent. Nico was also a fantastic acoustic bass player, but on this album we hear him on the electric instrument.

The assjmpo sounds absolutely perfect, jazz in its best form.

The music of Victor Assis Brasil could easily be part of a jazz standard book. He has an impressive discography that includes many big names.
