Purim and Moreira play warm soundsfrom Brazil1

By Marc S. Taras
Maybe if we all cross our fingers,
click our heels three times, and
repeat, "There's no place like Ann
Arbor! There's no place like Ann
Arbor!" then everything will be
alright. After last Saturday's
cancellation by Keith Jarrett, jazz
fans and concert promoters are
hopeful that malingering Halloween
spooks linger no more. Tomorrow
night in two shows (8 p.m. and
10:30 p.m.) at the Ark Eclipse is
presenting red hot Brazilian jazz

from vocalist Flora Purim and
percussionist Airto Moreira. For at
least one night, summer in Rio will
replace Michigan's November chill.
Flora Purim was born in Rio
DeJaneiro in 1942. She came to the
United States in 1967 and studied at
California State, Long Beach. In
1972, she married Airto Moreira.
Purim is possessed of a remarkable
voice with a six octave range. She
can sing a ballad in her native
Portuguese in a whispy, sensual
soprano, or roar out a funk and
fusion piece in street-English. She

will offer wordless vocalise that
reflects the sounds of animals and
nature. The tiger growling in the
veldt... Ahh... the gulls soaring
above the beach, calling to the
Flora Purim has recorded witt
Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke,
McCoy Tyner, Carlos Santana, and
many others. Her repertoire includes
jazz standards, Brazilian traditional
works, and Latin fusion. And of
course, the organic rhythmic charge
provided by Airto Moreira.
Airto (pronounced "eye-ear-toe";
Moreira was born in Curitiba, Brazil
in 1941. He is a self-taught
percussionist and drummer who has
been performing since he was 12. He
has been credited with single
handedly revitalizing the role of
percussionists in modern music.
Using both hands and feet, he has
contributed to the music of Miles
Davis, Cannonball Adderley,

tWeather Report, Paul Simon, and
1other stars. His discography is
enormous, as is his variety of sound.
Airto Moreira is concerned with
natural sounds. His rhythms are the
organic rhythms of life. He plays an
Iexotic array of traditional percussion
instruments. Moreira is a master of
lthe Berimbau, a one-stringed bowed
instrument which uses a gourd as a
tresonator. A sort of primal guitar,
Fthe Berimbau is played in
conjunction with caxixi (Ka-she-
she), basket rattles woven from dried
tMoreira is also an astonishing
tand powerful performer on trap
drums. It will be exciting to see
what kind of set-up he brings to the
Ark. He is sure to get your heart
Ebeating and your body bouncing.
"Joining Flora Purim and Airto
Moreira will be guitarist Jose Neto
from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Over the
last ten years Neto's warm playing
has been featured with Harry
Belafonte, Tania Maria, and Randy
Brecker. His association with Purim
and Moreira dates back several years.
So, if you like your jazz served
sunny side up, with more Cayenne
power than a bottle of Clancy's
Fancy Hot Sauce, book passage to
Brazil tomorrow night. You won't
have to travel far.
All the warmth and love of Rio
will be right here in town tomorrow
night at 8 and 10:30 p.m. at the
Ark. Flora Purim, Airto Moreira,
and Jose Neto travel with something
special that they don't even have to
pack. You will know when you hear
them that they carry the music
within them wherever they may be.
ITickets are $10-50.

Flora Purim and Airto Moreira will play an exciting evening of Latin
American jazz tomorrow night at the Ark.
