For those who know Flora, an introduction is unnecessary. Her music has interwoven the life fabric of anyone with a passing interest in Latin and American jazz music for over 25 years.

FLORA PURIM Open Your Eyes You Can Fly

Album · 1976 · Latin Jazz
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
snobb
Brazilian vocalist Flora Purim became famous after her participation on one of the best ever recorded fusion albums - Chick Corea's Return To Forever. After one more release with Corea she left for concentrating more on solo career.

Flora's album, from very early and till some recorded in 90s, all contain music which is more or less related with Latin/fusion atmosphere of first RTF works. "open Your Eyes..."contains three RTF/Corea's covers plus five Flora's or/and Hermeto Pascoal originals, recorded in similar key.

Comparing with previous Purim solo albums' music, one can find more energetic, more rhythmic and more accessible songs here. Rooted deeply in her trademark Latin/fusion mixture, this album's music is obviously more oriented on possible commercial success. As a result, it looses in part dreamy spiritual atmosphere which was so significant success' component of Flora's earlier works, but from other hand whole music is lighter and more optimistic.

Mostly transitional work still containing traces of magic of her earlier works. Great musicians team/musicianship as well.
