Inverse Universe by Claudia Villela & Ricardo Peixoto

INVERSE UNIVERSE is an excellent CD collection, and an indepth look at contemporary jazz music and jazz vocals in Brazil. This is a topnotch CD, and the performances are memorable.

There are ten songs in the collection. Among them are "Ima," "Caravana," "Presenca," "Inverse Universe," "Falsa Valsa," "Brasil com S," "Falando Sozinho," "Lobisomem," "Matriz," and "In Your Name."

Original performances will mesmerize the listening audience with their straight-forward approach and depth of feeling. This is a collection to be shared with a friend, or loved one, and a sure winner wherever excellent Brazilian jazz music is desired for listening pleasure.

The vocals of Claudia Villela and guitar stylings of Ricardo Peixoto are brilliant, sensitive, and enjoyable. They are a perfect match, their duo work superb.

Every musician is perfect for this recording and the harmonica performances of Toots Thielemans are among his finest to date. Marcos Silva gives verve and style to his piano performances on "Falsa Valsa" and "In Your Name."

Flawless recording. Highly recommended.
