SABOYA-ADOLFO-MEURKENS/Copa Village: The best daddy-daughter team in Brazilian jazz hook up with the best harmonica player since Toots Thielemans for a trip back to Copacabana in more innocent times where breezy grooves and scandalous bathing suits were as wild as it got. If you have a taste for Brazilian jazz that goes back to the birth of the bossa nova era, this trio and their pals hit the nail so squarely on the head you have to think the nail hurts. Lovely stuff by practitioners that were to the manner born, it killer stuff throughout that even improves upon the originals. Check it out.
