Soul Jazz Records’ CD / LP reissue of this very rare album, first released as a private-press LP in 1978 on flautist Lloyd McNeill’s own Baobab Record label in Washington, DC.

The album has been out-of-print for 43 years and is lovingly remastered by Soul Jazz Records. ‘Tori’ is a stunning album that blends Brazilian and Latin flavours with deep Spiritual Jazz.

The album features a strong line up which includes legendary Brazilian figures such as Dom Um Romao, Nana Vasconcelos and Dom Salvador alongside jazz heavyweights such as Buster Williams, Howard Johnson, John La Barbera and more. These A-team musicians were all regulars in McNeill’s long-running and highly successful resident live group in New York, all set up to blend deep jazz, Brazilian and Latin music together.
