||Encounters Of The Fourth World CD (1995) |
Fourth World music CDs Principally recorded live in Amsterdam, Holland and at Ronnie Scott's, London, England.
Airto Moreira and his wife Flora Purim provided their most essential recordings in the '70s, but the two were still quite capable of excellence in the '80s and '90s, either in separate groups or as a team. In 1995, the Brazilian artists toured Europe as co-leaders of a combo called Fourth World, which boasted Moreira on percussion, drums, and vocals, Purim on vocals, José Neto on guitar, Gary Brown on bass, and Jovino Santos on keyboards and flute. Recorded live at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam on February 19, 1995, Encounters of the Fourth World paints an attractive picture of the group. The music is solid jazz-funk-rock with a Brazilian flavor. Anyone who has appreciated Moreira and Purim's '70s and '80s collaborations would have a hard time not appreciating their inspired performances on material that ranges from the pensive "Scorpion Rising" to the mysterious "Burning Money." When she isn't embracing lyrics, Purim reminds us that she is still one of jazz's most original scat singers. Encounters of the Fourth World falls short of essential, but it's a consistently pleasing CD that Moreira and Purim's devoted fans will enjoy. ~ Alex Henderson

||Last Journey CD (1999) |
Fourth World songs The third album released by the Fourth World project of Airto Moreira & Flora Purim includes ten tracks of neo-worldbeat. The productions range all over the map, from dense electronic groove to beautiful acoustic Brazilian pop courtesy of Purim. The balance between organic and electronic works well, with not only Airto on percussion but also Giovanni Hidalgo and several different programmers. Though the range from edgy to pop-laden is quite extreme, Last Journey is a beautiful record throughout. ~ John Bush
