On his ambitious 8th solo album, "Rhythm Of The Spirits," renowned São Paulo-born (and currently Miami-based) drummer Roberto Sallaberry, reunited an all-star cast of 20 Brazilian musicians and recorded them in nothing less than 19 different studios. Bass stylist Jorge Pescara shines on his duo number with the leader, "Invocation," while brilliant guitarist Fulvio Oliveira sounds creative and flawless on all his appearances, most notably on "Winds From The East," "Voices" and "Before The Rain." A top class fusion adventure.
