Even though instrumental choro has been jazz-influenced for decades, reedsman Moura really falls somewhere between choro and jazz-samba. The jazz elements are very strong, the local ingredients more varied and more Afro-Brazilian than usual, and he is fond of a big-band sound and a somewhat staid avant-gardism, both of which are foreign to the mainstream idiom. But the spirit and the underlying sound are choro rather than anything else, even if they do stretch the boundaries. And Moura is a fine player with a fine group.
I'm no expert on Paulo Moura, but after several albums, this is the one that seriously sticks out for me (with maybe 'mistura e manda' not far behind). The first two tracks are seriously scorching, and the rest of the album isnt far behind.
Very highly recommended. An album I can keep coming back to - there's nothing else that quite scratches the same itch!
