Sam Gendel sounds so different here on this very acoustic sounding duo album in the company of Gendel's erstwhile Airto Moreira playing partner guitarist Fabiano do Nascimento. The maverick trappings we expect have been packed away for the sake of some very pared back easy listening. Full of sweet centres, lots of labyrinthine musical conversations spool effortlessly. The acoustic fingerpicking style of Brazilian player Nascimento on a seven string provides a solid wash of a musical landscape that Gendel on soprano sax reliably adds even more colour to. Tunes are succinct, the tender and vulnerable sounding 'Até de Manhã' is the pick - but listen to the whole album in one sitting if you can for the full effect. But, while there are lots of charming moments here, can we have the old, more maverick, Gendel back?
