The album art was developed based on a traditional Northeastern art called Xylography, in which the artist develops an image by engraving wood with a metal object. Likewise, Ian Faquini and Paula Santoro engrave their music into the listener’s heart as the metallic harmonics of the voice interplay with the wooden tone of the guitar. The lyrics of the CD describe the exuberance and poverty of that region of Brazil –the joy, colors and natural beauty, but also sadness, drought and longing of a people who are accustomed to extremes.

At one time Hollywood and Television couldn’t get enough of jazz scores in its movies shows. An august generation of composers with serious jazz pedigrees are still around—Johnny Mandel (whom we profiled back in 2014), David Amram, Andre Previn, Lalo Schifrin and Quincy Jones to name a few. With all of these guys now in their 80s, some wonder where is the next generation of composers and arrangers will come from.
