Notes & Reviews:

After more than forty years of musical symbiosis and of stage shared with his brother Sergio, Odair records his first solo album. First recordings and new compositions appear on this CD by Leo Brouwer, Egberto Gismonti, Sergio Assad, Kevin Callahan and Roland Dyens.

It all began with a gift: Fá offered me a sonata! This fifteen minute present, flooded from Leo Brouwer’s pen, provoked in my life a singular revolution. More than forty years of musical symbiosis and of stage shared with my brother Sérgio got me used to always feeling, on my left side, a presence that I didn’t need to look at for my universe to merge with his. Obviously my sonata would need company and space to communicate; time took care of it with the partnership of persons dear to my heart and important in my life: Sergio, my partner for ever, Egberto, the genius, Roland, the Brazilian who was not born in Brazil and Kevin, my best friend. The result is this album whose existence is, for me, still hard to believe in ... - Odair Assad
