105: Airto Moreira (Miles Davis, Return To Forever, Jobim, Flora Purim, etc.)

Throughout a career that has spanned over five decades, Airto Moreira has distinguished himself as an exceptionally innovative percussionist, singer, and composer. He tells Joe about his upbringing in rural Brazil, his early gigs on horseback, arriving in New York, recording the landmark Bitches Brew record with Miles Davis, collaborating with his wife–singer Flora Purim, and his sense of spirituality. A great conversation with one of the greatest musicians of our time.
