Hermeto +

Project combining the music of brazilian genius Hermeto Pascoal  and original compositions released on  Basho in 2009.

I first heard the Music of Hermeto more than 25 years ago and fell in love with it instantly. It has continued to fascinate and entrance me ever since, and a small part of the spirit of Hermeto has permeated all my work to date.  I hope that this recording is a celebration, tribute and a musical “thank you” for all this and more.
