This album began as Woods' tribute to the wonderful Brazilian singer Elis Regina. Gradually it evolved into a broader project, a salute to Astor Piazzola as well. Five of the 11 compositions in the album are by Piazzolla, and another Piece for Piazzolla, is Woods’ tribute to him. "It's all about the pure passion of Piazzolla's music—it's fado with jazz roots. You can almost see the bulls running..." The rest of the tunes are Brazilian, excepting Dizzy Gillespie's “Con Alma.” "The album is also a salute to Dizzy," Woods says. "He's the father of it all."
