4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

Easily one of the greatest albums ever by Hermeto Pascoal – a masterpiece of free-thinking jazz that combines all of the best elements of his work! At one level, there's an experimental approach to instrumentation that really grabs the ears – but it's also wrapped around a key sense of groove that holds everything together nicely, and which fuses the elements with a cosmically soaring approach that never lets up for the length of the entire set! Flora Purim, Airto, and Raul De Souza all guest star – and the album's got a really universal appeal that bridges US, Brazilian, and European jazz scenes of the 70s! Titles include "Mixing Pot", "Slaves Mass", "Just Listen", and "Cherry Jam"
