One vision, two icons - endless love.

Collab highlights include a so very tender version of the Charlie Haden classic 'Silence' that goes back to 1980 ECM album Mágico on which the great Ornettian Haden appeared on with Norwegian master Jan Garbarek and the Brazilian guitarist-pianist genius Egberto Gismonti, a piece that Gonzalo Rubalcaba also interpreted so luminously on 2015's Haden memorial album, Charlie.

Share this new experience deep down inside: Afro-Latin, jazz and Brazilian sounds from Cuba piano great Rubalcaba whose 1990s classic album The Blessing with Haden and Jack DeJohnette still stands the test of time is here on a Miami studio recording with Brazilian 10-string mandolin master Hamilton de Holanda.

But there's so much more. Rubalcaba tunes, De Holanda tunes, a lovely feature by harmonica ace Gabriel Grossi - de Holanda's bandmate on 2017's Casa de Bituca - on Stevie Wonder's 'Don’t You Worry 'Bout A Thing' and a very fine vocal turn led off by inspired vocalese from the great João Bosco on his own co-write 'Incompatibilidade de gênios' conversationally accompanied by de Holanda.
