Andrea Brachfeld plays flute and the darker alto flute set to a collection of Brazilian themes dominated by Antonio Jobim. She mixes and matches with Bill O’Connell/p-key, Harvie S-Lincoln Goines/g, Roni Ben-Hur/g, T. Porinho-Jason Tiemann/dr and Chembo Corniel/perc with some boppy pieces like her own “Espaco Aberto” and a relaxed “Triste E Solitaria.” Jobim’s “Double Rainbow” is a soulful keyboard affair with Brachfeld’s flute floating to the breeze while she glides over the hard driving shuffle of an extroverted “Waters of March”. Brachfeld’s tone and solos are lyrical and always optimistic. There’s a smile on the beach of Ipanema. Read full review here.
