Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Individually, vocalist Maucha Adnet and pianist Helio Alves boast impressive résumés. She has collaborated with Charlie Byrd, Dori Caymmi, Eliane Elias, Gilberto Gil and Toninho Horta, and spent a decade touring and recording with Antonio Carlos Jobim. He's partnered with an equally illustrious assortment of artists, including Yo-Yo Ma, Joe Henderson and Paquito D'Rivera.
Now, at long last, Adnet and Alves have united for an album, a 14-track compendium that captures a kinship that is the musical equivalent of water and air: distinct yet vitally interdependent. Alves is the sun-dappled sea, alternately roiling and calm but consistently deep, powerful and mysterious. Adnet is the vast sky, sometimes cloudy and occasionally stormy.
