Reviews and Articles

“Everything sounds just perfect; freshly minted,
so achingly supple and seductive, and ravishingly free of bar-lines and
pyrotechnical display.” – Raul da Gama, for World Music Report

“Every track on this new album is a gem, instrumentally and vocally – a very
tough act to follow. Even on light jazz albums, artists have a hard time combining
the two different forces into a cohesive, workable whole. Moran and his Falso
Baiano crew rise above by both reflecting and immersing themselves into the
entire choro experience – Carol Banks Weber for Festival Peak Magazine
