Three strong Brazilian Jazz Funk albums from percussionist Airto’s 70’s heyday. ‘Free’ recorded in 1972 for CTI is sublime. It features members of Return To Forever supplemented by full brass and woodwind sections. Chick Corea’s track ‘Return To Forever’ is given an expansive Latin treatment. The title song is another fine groove, but also try ‘Creek’ and ‘Flora’s Song’. ‘Identity’ features the wonderful ‘The Magicians’, the percussive ‘Encounter’, the bright, catchy ‘Wake Up Song’ and the venturesome take on Hermeto Pascoal’s ‘Mae Cambina’. ‘Promises Of The Sun’ is another nice set with a version of ‘Batucada’, the title song and ‘Georgina’ among the highlights.
