CD of the Week - "Pacífico Mascarenhas & Juarez Moreira: Standards"

CD of the Week
Pacífico Mascarenhas & Juarez Moreira: "Standards" (PM) 2010

62 minutes of Jimmy Rowles & Joe Pass? No, this time the duo is Pacífico Mascarenhas & Juarez Moreira. And it's the talk of the town.
Pacífico, who had never played in any of the several albums recorded by his legendary Sambacana group, surprises the world appearing as a pianist in this duo session with one of Brazil's all-time greatest guitarists, Juarez Moreira, heard on his Gibson.
This limited deluxe package comes with an additional booklet including the lead sheets of all the 50 tunes contained herein, and distributed on the CD in 17 medleys.
Highlights: "I'll Remember April," "Easy to Love," "Lover" and Pacífico's own "For Emily" and "One of These Days" (aka "Num Desses Dias," from the "Sambacana IV" album).
