Brazilian singer Flora Purim and her husband, the drummer and percussionist Airto Moreira, dominated magazine jazz polls in the 1970s. This superb live set was recorded for broadcast on WBUR-FM at the first Playboy Jazz Festival, held at the Hollywood Bowl in 1979, and also features percussionists Laudir de Oliveira (from Chicago) and Bayanu (from Caldera), Raul de Souza (trombone), Milcho Leviev (keyboards), and Keith Jones (bass), as well as an introduction by Billy Taylor. Joyous and infectious, the complete broadcast is presented here in digitally remastered sound with background notes and images.
