âBrazilian Wishâ is a fantastic CD featuring tightly played, captivating arrangements performed by a group of top flight New York City professionals. The band is perfectly suited to backing up trumpet/flugelhorn player Matt Finley in his solo explorations of his own compositions. Matt is a truly natural player; i.e., an âearâ player whose musicianship is on par with the great band heâs surrounded himself with. His solos are smooth, perfectly executed and always logical.â - Kelly Conner (pro pianist, composer & music prof)
