Baptista, Cyro: Macunaima (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Banquet of the Spirits features the tight new quartet led by maestro Cyro Baptista- the fabulous percussionist who has performed with everyone from Herbie Hancock and Yo-Yo Ma to Laurie Anderson, Paul Simon and Medeski, Martin and Wood. Cyro's endless sonic curiosity and intense rhythmic drive has never been stronger in these fabulous and imaginative original songs. Featuring three of the best young musicians out of the downtown scene and some very special guests, the music jumps from a whisper to a scream and never misses a beat. Delightful music from one of the world's greatest and most adventurous Brazilian musicians."-Tzadik
