Hermeto Pascoal's debut album as a leader, "Hermeto", was released in 1971 on Cobblestone, produced by Airto & Flora Purim after Fields' approval. At Muse, Fields signed Dom Um Romao and produced his first solo sessions in the USA, that yielded the albums "Dom Um Romao" and "Spirit Of The Times".
He was also responsible for the very controversial "Donato/Deodato" album, being credited as producer in the second pressing when the album was re-titled "Joao Donato" after a law suit. [George Klabin had been listed as producer in the original vinyl issue.]
He was very important to the careers of Mark Murphy, Charles Earland, Kenny Barron, Grant Green, Cedar Walton, Norman Connors, Houston Person etc.
