Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - p.70
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "'Macunaima' compacts the genre hopping into a single piece, a forro-esque blast that rips through a Parisian cafe, a death metal practice space and the old Knitting Factory, as John Zorn sits it and imparts the raucous spirit of Naked City."
Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.45) - "[T]his fare will bubble the brain and juggle the organs -- not for the faint of mind, heart, or stomach -- but it's well worth the tab, so just eat it."

Master Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista is a "world musician" in the truest sense of the word; he's performed with everyone from Irish folk kings the Chieftains to Chinese classical icon Yo-Yo Ma. BANQUET OF THE SPIRITS is accordingly eclectic, incorporating a swirling, polyrhythmic, pan-Latin stew of beats and melodies, with Middle Eastern and European influences liberally sprinkled in. For all of the album's far-ranging flavors, though, the format is largely acoustic, making for an organic flow that complements the multitude of musical traditions explored.
