It was a night for making memories when all seven of us approached the stage to play those favorite Brazilian with the genius pianist Roberto Monsalves for the first time in ten years since his departure back to Chile!

Halloween Brazilian Jazz

Of course we continued to play that Brazilian sound over the years but since his departure they were never the same as the CD recorded back in 2006. I was simply in musical heaven with every tune! Judging from the response of the packed room the audience felt the sam!
