From the outdoor setting to the live drums, from the rhythm of Brazilian dance to the enthusiasm of the instructor — this workout has energy! The movements range from classic Latin Sambas and Mambos to Brazilian street-dance-specific Axés, Afros and Frevos (well-taught and surprisingly easy to follow). You’ll start with an extended warm-up; it’s designed to get you comfortable shaking your shoulders, rolling your hips and popping your chest. Then Vanessa Isaac demos a pattern, brings it to half-tempo and then finally uses it in a fast-paced combo. Later, she adds on a new routine and begins again. It ends with a short “freestyle” section; it’s like you’re dancing in a Rio street party. Not recommended for carpeted floors.

There is something truly majestic in the guitar playing and composing of Luiz Bonfá. From solo dates such as 1959's Solo in Rio (issued stateside by Smithsonian Folkways) to his 1972 masterpiece, Introspection, his sound is as telltale as the two other Brazilian guitar greats, Baden Powell and Djalma de Andrade (aka Bola Sete). Bonfá's elegance in style is what sets him apart from even these great masters. There is something utterly unhurried and gentle about his manner of playing, even during its most intense moments or in the most decorative settings (there were a lot of those during the bossa craze)…

The great British jazz singer Norma Winstone once again casts her net wide for source material for this third ECM album with Italian pianist Glauco Venier and German clarinetist / saxophonist Klaus Gesing. Alongside new pieces by Winstone/Gesing and by Venier, the trio covers tunes by singer-songwriters Nick Drake, Fred Neil and Tom Waits. They take a fresh approach to Madonna’s “Live To Tell”, and to Dave Grusin’s “It Might Be You”, as well as Ralph Towner’s “A Breath Away” (now with lyrics by Norma) and “Bein’ Green”, a children’s song elevated to jazz standard status by Sinatra, Stan Kenton, Ray Charles and many more. “As Winstone moves ever farther from the Great American Songbook,” All About Jazz observed, “it's certain that, with band mates as sympathetic as Gesing and Venier, there's precious little she can't do”.

This was one of the legendary tenor saxophonist’s final recording sessions before his death on November 5, 1996. Recorded in 1994 with a marvelous quartet, Freedom Jazz Dance is a portrait of a musical titan with his creative muse in full bloom. Eddie Harris and his tenor sax join together with Jacky Terrasson, piano; George Mraz, bass, and Billy Hart, drums, to compile an eight-track SACD full of jazz's favorite staples as well as originals by quartet members. His immediately recognizable sound is beautifully showcased on this disc.
