    Personnel: Helio Alves (piano); John Paitucci, Nilson Matta (bass); Al Foster, Duduka DaFonceca, Paulo Braga (drums).
    Recorded at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on August 21 & 22, 1997. Includes liner notes by Zan Stewart.
    A fine pianist from Brazil, Helio Alves primarily plays straight-ahead jazz (along with a few bossas) on this excellent disc. He is teamed on various selections with bassist John Patitucci and drummer Al Foster (including Cedar Walton's "Bolivia," "There Is No Greater Love," and "My Ship") and on other numbers with bassist Nilson Matta and drummer Duduka DaFonseca; Paulo Braga takes DaFonseca's place on Bud Powell's "Halluncinations." Whether swinging in a hard bop style or caressing Brazilian melodies, Helio Alves excels throughout this easily recommended set. ~ Scott Yanow
