When I saw Yo-Yo Ma perform with James Taylor at the Grammy Awards I was infinitely impressed with his versatility and humility. This album by Yo-Yo Ma in particular is now one of my favorites because it embodies so many traits of his in a fun and funky form. You really get a sense of who he is as a musician and how technically masterful he is but he is also very open, warm and rhythmic and not condescending in his musical expressions. Brazilian influences are then a perfect match for his style. Yo-Yo Ma's music is not snobbishly classical but always emotionally moving and inspiring whether he is playing purely classical music or being innovative. He will reach for blends of classical sounds and popular sounds and embrace it all. He explores and takes risks with his music in this album and it's that sense of fearlessness, balance and integration and never sterotyping those of us who really love great music that I love so much about this album which is to me the best yet of all of Yo-Yo Ma's music.
