Take Five by Two For Brazil

The wait is over, for here comes the long awaited new recording by Two For Brazil, featuring the talents of Paulinho Garcia on acoustic guitar & vocals, and Greg Fishman on tenor saxophone & flute. TAKE FIVE is a fine CD collection, full of sensitive and haunting melodies performed as only Garcia and Fishman together can create!

There are 14 songs on this CD. Among them are such jazz gems as "A Night In Tunisia," "Take Five," the hauntingly beautiful "Pra Dizer Adeus" ("To Say Goodbye"), "Capim" ("Grass"), "Menina Flor" (Young Flower"), and "Batida Diferente," ("Different Beat"), among others.

Garcia and Fishman are incredibly good together in this collection, and Dave Brubeck & Paul Desmond would be genuinely pleased with this duo's performance of their classic "Take Five." Garcia's beautiful and sensitive vocals and guitar performances are a perfect match for the sensitive and indepth saxophone and flute performances of Fishman. This is one of the finest duos in contemporary jazz.

TAKE FIVE is a winner in all ways. This is a flawless, beautiful collection and will appeal to all jazz listeners.

TAKE FIVE is a classic in the making and a recording which will hold up well with the passage of time.

TAKE FIVE delights, entertains, and is enjoyable listening. Highly recommended.
