A studio and live recording with my working Cincinnati based band, Brasilia, made up of my colleagues from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of music.

“…an enjoyable effort that fans of melodic, lyrical Brazilian jazz should be aware of.” -Alex Henderson, Jazz Inside Magazine

“there is ….a kind of reckless ingenuity that makes this album, Brazilian People really worth listening to. More than once.” – Danilo Navas,

“A joyful tribute to one of the most cheerful genres of music around….the feeling is polite and eager to please, not intruding or busting down the door, more like gently knocking on the door to be welcomed in.” –
