This is a CD ready version from the gig capture. Along with the fade in and out in the very beginning and end, respectively, the applauses in between tracks have been normalized - 8db for a more comfortable listening experience.
It was an astounding gig, with a mostly respectful and enthusiastic audience full of Minas Gerais music luminaries such as Toninho Horta, Túlio Mourão and many others, I am sure. An exceptional combo, full of pure musical energy and feeling that I am glad I had the opportunity of watching/listening live, and which brings me great joy to have the chance for sharing it here.
The recording sound is very good to excellent (within my rig's capabilities and considering the not ideal spot it was recorded from) and audience intrusion is minimal, captured in a house with state of the art acoustics. Samples are available.
