About the Album

“Flying Waltz,” boasts a lush string arrangement by Don Sebesky and features Hubert Laws on flute, is a piece that Lima wrote for his short film “O Casamento de Mario e Fia” (The Marriage of Mario and Fia). “Don is one of the kindest men I ever met in my life,” Lima asserts, “and after the session we became friends. Don conducted the arrangement for ‘Flying Waltz just like an angel, and the notes he wrote are just wonderful."
