"...Perera's influences are Latin, jazz, Afro-Caribbean and New Age, yet the sum of the parts is uniquely Pererian and always stirring. If you're skeptical that the harp can be played in a jazz vein, listen to this master musician and you'll be converted..."
Personnel includes: Roberto Perera (harp), Juan Coelho, Emmett Williams, Raul Mido (vocals), Juan Areco (charango).
American audiences are searching out for Latin jazz and are discovering its leading ambassador, Roberto Perera. Using a percussive approach like that of a piano player rather than that of a stringed instrument (player), Perera displays a intriguing musical vision that explores the boundaries and parameters of the harp. Exotic rhythms with a contemporary jazz setting provide the intoxicating Latin backdrop that boasts an impressive and festive array of special guests, including vocalist Jair Coelho and saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera. ~ MusD
