Jazz FM's Amanda Martinez writes:
"Performing classic Brazilian tunes reorchestrated with modern jazz twists and original Brazilian jazz compositions penned by 2 award winning composers - Brownman & Attila Fias - this group is a spirited jazz romp from Rio to San Paulo featuring the delightful Brazilian percussionist/vocalist Aline Morales from Maracatu Nunca Antes."

"Toronto, in recent years has often been called 'Havana North' with the strong influx of Cuban musicians and we don't always see Brazilian jazz to the same degree or frequency we do Cuban jazz, but new Brazilian ensemble Permutações plans to change that."
