Americans who have been fortunate enough to visit Brazil realize that there is
something about a Samba, native style, that is difficult to match in our land of fox
trots and bebop.  It calls for joyous rhythm, brilliant technique, and an uninhibited
state of mind - all of which South American musicians possess in abundance.

In this album, Chuy Reyes' sparkling piano joins with The Brazilians in producing
exciting, genuine Samba music.  As a matter of fact, it was this group of musicians
who first introduced the Samba into this country, and who have done so much to
popularize it.

It's music you will dance to until exhaustion, then listen with delight to Chuy's rocking
rhythm and the gay vocals of Nilton Paz.  For the Samba can never be ignored... and
Chuy Reyes presents Samba at its best!
