Some recordings are of such importance that we will, when available, feature them in their entirety for the enjoyment of our readers, especially when they are out of print or otherwise hard to obtain.
The first in our series is an album entitled Quarteto Novo, featuring the remarkable multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal, a significant name in World Music since his 1971 appearances with Miles Davis.
If he was not so busy playing the piano and a variety of flutes, saxophones, brass, percussion and folk instruments, as well as composing, arranging and producing recordings, Hermeto would be much better known for his flute playing. But in his 1967 appearance with Quarteto Novo, which also featured another Miles Davis alumnus, Brazilian percussionist Airto Moreiro, he is featured extensively on flute, as well as piano, on a series of originals by Brazilian composers, including himself. All the pieces are also arranged by Hermeto.
