Product Description:

Personnel: Hendrik Meurkens (harmonica, vibraphone); Dori Caymmi , Oscar Castro-Neves (vocals, guitar); Guilherme Monteiro (guitar); Robson Cerqueira (bandolim); Pedro Ramos (cavaquinho); Paquito d'Rivera (clarinet); H‚lio Alves (piano); Nilson Matta (double bass); Duduka Da Fonseca (drums, percussion); Jorge Amorim, Z‚ Maur¡cio, Cassio Duarte (percussion).
Hendrik Meurkens grew up in Germany and attended Berklee College of Music in the United States, but his primary musical passion has long been Brazilian music. Already a virtuoso on harmonica (and the first serious rival to Toots Thielemans on the instrument), he is in terrific form throughout this session. Meurkens gathered a number of the top Brazilian players to join him, featuring the well-known vocalist and guitarist Doryi Cayimmi on a brisk, passionate take of "Amazon River" and the equally warm "O Cantador." Another popular Brazilian guitarist, Oscar Castro-Neves, guests on two of Antonio Carlos Jobim's compositions, the samba "Piano Na Manqueira" and "Ela ‚ Carioca," while Cuban clarinetist Pacquito D'Rivera trades licks with the leader in the joyful choro "Lingua de Mosquito." Meurkens also doubles on vibes on one track. This is a delightful date from start to finish. ~ Ken Dryden
