Ulisses Rocha is a master of the guitar and an important figure in modern, adventurous Brazilian jazz. With his talent, he creates intricate instrumental music. Rocha delivers the harmonic and rhythmic complexity of a trio on his album Moleque (Child). On "Rhythm and Romance," guitarist Rick Udler and vocalist Maria Alvim offer an understated beauty in the tradition of the beguiling simplicity with which Jobim first gave Brazil a global audience.
