Herbie Mann makes another of his periodic returns to Brazilian fare on this CD, but the country the ever-restless flutist visits is contemporary Brazil, not echoes of the bossa nova past. A lovely place it is, too, full of melodic, evocative material from the pens of Djavan and Ivan Lins, inspiring Mann to sail lightly and playfully like a kite above the modern samba beat. This was 1987, so the backing textures are mostly digital synthesizers, but Mark Soskin's touch is light, and he doesn't interfere with the grooves. Trumpeter Claudio Roditi makes a single, somewhat lackluster appearance on the otherwise luscious "Sonhos," Romero Lubambo is the facile guitarist, and soloist and band get to stretch out a lot on the multi-sectioned marathon "Little Chick A Dee." Everything goes down easily, and the result is one of Mann's best albums of that decade.
