"Saga" coming out all over the world

Rodrigo Lima's 2-CD set "Saga" is coming out this week, released worldwide by JSR. Recorded in LA, NY, Rio and Curitiba. Produced by Arnaldo DeSouteiro for Jazz Station Records, with a magnificent cover photo by Pete Turner, it features an all-star cast: Hermeto Pascoal, Don Sebesky, Hubert Laws, Raul de Souza, Anat Cohen, Mike Mainieri, Hugo Fattoruso, Zé Eduardo Nazario, Frank Herzberg, Sammy Figueroa, Aline Morena, Jamil Joanes, Laudir de Oliveira, João Palma, Sergio Barroso, Cesar Machado, Ithamara Koorax, Carol Ma, Gene Back, Alice Hamlet and many others. Chief Engineer: Victor França. Additional engineering: Jay Messina, Beto Japa, Aaron Nevezie, Mario Jorge Bruno, Hal Batt, Ben Elliot etc.
During my 32-year career as a recording producer, I've had the honor to work with such masters as Joao Gilberto, Luiz Bonfa, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Dom Um Romao, Joao Donato, Eumir Deodato, Mario Castro-Neves, Thiago de Mello, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Larry Coryell, John McLaughlin, Jay Berliner, Gene Bertoncini, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Dexter Payne, Art Farmer, Azymuth, the list goes on and on. But I can assure that "Saga" is one of the best albums I've ever produced. And Rodrigo is a brilliant newcomer to the contemporary jazz scene, a true guitar wiz. The CD is already on sale at Dusty Groove, CD Baby, Amazon etc. Cheers!
