Produced by Rick Matle

Sheila Landis and Rick Matle perform bossa nova, samba and Latin pop-jazz, classic Brazilian repertoire & originals.  

"...a musical potpourri of original and familiar material, all with a Latin bent.  Landis has long been known for her unconventional, but always ear-opening, approach to the music.  As the session moves along, it becomes more and more obvious that Landis is perfectly confident that she can be on the mark with any note or any form of vocalizing...Highly recommended." David Nathan AllMusic
