Although the melancholy that sometimes clings to Brazilian music can also be felt on this evening, I was much more impressed by the joy of playing, the protagonists' flaring fires. Everything flows, the rhythms are irresistible. Even though the passion may seem routine, it is an expression of a blind understanding of the musicians to each other. The big applause of the audience is definitely a clear indicator that the spark has jumped from the beginning. And my thanks go to the sound engineer Johannes Wohlleben, who captured this event so excellently while listening to this sonically wonderful record.

Looking at Wolfgang Lackerschmid’s music career, there is no secret, he has a special penchant for Brazilian music. He played many concerts in the USA and in Europe with well-know latin jazz musicians such as Romero Lubambo, Claudio Roditi or Paquito D’Rivera. Not only traditional literature, but also Brazilian rhythmic and Lackerschmid's inspired compositions make this project special. A friendship between pianist Hélio Alves, drummer Duduka da Fonseca and bassist Nilson Matts, were the beginning of this project.
With breathtaking runs, rhythmic patterns and the variety of vibraphone’s sound colours, Wolfgang Lackerschmid and his trio captivated a fascinated audience. Sound engineer Johannes Wohlleben recorded this concert at its best.
