Last time I was in Rio, I got invited to Marisa Monte's studio just to hang out with a legendary songwriter named Cezar Mendes, aka Cezinha. After drinking tea & eating pão de queijo, they asked me to play on this beautiful song.

Thanks dB!

The post was interrupted a little bit... I want to mention that this was recorded entirely in Marisa's house, under the watchful ears of the one and only Mario Caldato Jr. The Brazilian humidity does funny things to the action of Yamaha grand pianos - it felt totally different to play than American/Canadian ones!

Dadi Carvalho (brother of one-time forumite Mu) is on guitar and various other things - he's the one who roped me into the session.

Man she's a legend. Awesome playing and what an incredible opportunity for you! Beautiful song. Of course pretty much everything that comes out of Brazil sounds anointed.

Sounds really great, David. I've listened to it a couple times now. Like Bobby says, what a cool opportunity (and Mario C!!).
