The debut album from American pianist Justin Badgerow is a program of rich dance rhythms, textures, and colors from four Brazilian composers together with the exquisite Saudades do Brasil of Milhaud.  Highly influenced by traditional and indigenous music and the landscapes of Brazil,  this is music of infectious delight, and includes both well-known works from Villa-Lobos and sparkling miniatures from Mignone, Gondim, and Guarnieri. Badgerow is a champion of Latin-American music. In this, his first solo recording, he demonstrates a close affinity with the music, imbuing every track with outstanding musicianship.
