The Brazilian strain that enriched American music in the early 1960s kept developing and changing, producing a succession of compelling performers. Among Brazilian vocalists, none matched the drama and passion of Flora Purim. Her work with Stan Getz, Duke Pearson, and Gil Evans led to her greater fame as a member of Chick Corea’s group Return to Forever. She and her husband, the percussionist Airto Moreira, were omnipresent in the jazz scene of the 1970s. Purim’s involvement with drugs led to a prison term. When it ended she went back to work with a feeling of joy and liberation that is celebrated in this album. Among the colleagues sharing her exuberance are Airto, pianist George Duke, and Purim’s teacher and soul mate, the master Brazilian musician Hermeto Pascoal. The CD includes a definitive performance of Corea’s "Time’s Lie."
