“Bucking tradition every step of the way…” – DRUM! Magazine
Brazilian percussion mastermind Airto Moreira has made a mark on improvised music from jazz and Brazilian to fusion and beyond. His arrival on the New York City jazz scene in the late 60s resulted in DownBeat Magazine adding a Percussion Poll to their annual Readers and Critics Polls. Aside from work with Miles Davis during the trumpeter’s influential electric period, Airto was a member of Joe Zawinul’s Weather Report and Chick Corea’s Return to Forever project. His current group, Eyedentity, features his daughter D. Booker on vocals, performing his unique blend of Afro-Brazilian, Samba, funk and jazz.
