too much genius
I mean come on, what do you expect with an album with Joscho, Bireli, Stochelo and Tommy. The funny thing is my favorite track, and Joscho says people tell him this all the time, is Samba Pa Ti which is just Joscho with no guest. Really just so much goodness and tastiness, and musical loveliness on this album you won't be disappointed.

Great great album. Love listening the exchanges between Joscho and the guys. Only thing he could've done it without Tommy. But I get it, he's the most commercially attractive guest. And I like Tommy's playing. It's his shouts, hollers and exclamations that I wish I didn't have to hear. Tommy will always find a way to put himself in a spotlight while supposedly turning the spotlight over to the other player/performer. See I'm writing a review on Joscho's new album and 70% of it I spent on writing about Tommy. Anyway I programmed mine to exclude songs with Tommy and am enjoying the rest a ton. What a great pairing of masters. They're all doing their best but it doesn't feel they are trying to outdo each other. I love it how easily recognizable the sound of each soloist is and how nicely they support each other with rhythm/solo exchange. A Gypsy jazz classic for sure!
