When the sizzling sounds of
Brazil entered the mainstream of
American music in the 1960s, Airto Moreira, the world’s foremost percussionist,
was the leader. Together with his wife, vocalist Flora Purim, one of the most
innovative voices in modern Jazz, this DVD, Airto & Flora Purim: The
Latin Jazz All-Stars, presents a spectacular night of Latin
inspired Jazz music featuring Jazz All-Stars such as Joe Farrell and Tony
Moreno. Recorded live from the Queen Mary Jazz Festival, this live concert DVD
is a rhythmic, vocal and visual delight…a foot-tapping experience to the sounds
of Airto & Flora Purim, truly two of

a new progressive sound in Brazilian music… the mixing of fiery, passionate
rhythms with soft chord changes. Since his relocation from his homeland to the
U.S., Airto has

that allowed her to communicate with her audience more freely. Today, she has
perfected a vocal style that is truly unique.
This special DVD, Airto & Flora Purim: The Latin Jazz All-Stars, not only serves as a living document of the
unique collaboration between American Jazz and the Brazilian Rhythm, but as a
testament to the skill of Airto Moreira
and singer Flora Purim, two of the primary purveyors of this ambitious
