If You Will

If You Will

One of the all-time greats of Brazilian Jazz-Fusion, Flora Purim, returns with her first studio album in over 15 years, ‘If You Will’.

Artist: Flora Purim

Genre: Contemporary Jazz

Label: K7

Release date:

This album is a triumphant celebration, exploring new compositions alongside fresh versions of some of Flora�۪s favourite songs. Title track ���If You Will�۪ revives her past collaborations with producer and long-time friend, the legendary George Duke:

���You will find good love, real joy, so much peace of mind, if you will��_�۝

The tune sets a positive and inspiring tone that echoes throughout the project and features vocals from Flora�۪s daughter, Diana Purim, who guests on four of the nine tracks. ���This Is Me�۪ is a tune rewritten in Portuguese and originally penned in English in 2005 by Diana and her production partner, husband Krishna Booker; ���500 Miles High�۪ marks the heyday of the late Chick Corea�۪s Return To Forever band and 'Zahuroo' by Brazilian singer/pianist Cl��udia Villela features Cl��udia on an exciting and dynamic group vocal with Flora and husband, renowned percussionist Airto Moreira.

A true family affair, ���If You Will�۪ is one of many albums recorded over the years by the team of Flora, Airto, Diana and Krishna. The project reunites some of Flora�۪s closest circle of musical peers, including guitarist/composer Jos̩ Neto and drummer/engineer��Celso Alberti who, together with Diana and Krishna helped Flora produce this album.
