BrazilOnGuitar says: On short notice the 25 year old Japanese Jazz bass player Isao Suzuki was replacing Ernesto-Ribeiro Goncalves on this record. BP's concert program was similiar to the one of his last tours through Europe and Japan. Despite of Isao Suzuki's unplanned contribution he proved to be an equal and versatile musician, finding his way between Alfredo and Baden. It is not known whether Baden had planned to play the Japanese concerts in a trio formation. Maybe the right drummer was not yet found. It can only be guessed how this setting with the Japanese bass player influenced his future studio work. At the end of this year he would seek again the collaboration with a professional Jazz bassist recording enough material for two records.
