Their Braziljazz changes between dapper, pacy and percussive.
"The overture is what you would expect from a CD that is called Impressions of Brazil: it is so melodious and cheerful, lighthearted and dancing"
"The extremely fine 'Introspection 5' is representative for the atmsphere, sometimes slightly melancholy accent and fabulous arrangements on this album."

"In his series Songs Inspired By Wandering The Globe is, after an introductory album, the first part released by Challenge, inspired by the many musical styles from Brazil. The album it's called, Impressions of Brazil"
"Impressions of Brazil, partly due to the contribution of Ceumar, a beautiful first sequel to The Journey"
"Del Ferro made it possible to create a real Brasilian atmosphere to 'Impressions of Brazil"
You will be lifted to other realms!
"Mike del Ferro moves in this musical idiom like he haven't done anything else"

"The music is gaining much authenticity thanks to the Brazilian singer Ceumar. Her collaboration with Del Ferro was previously formed in Ceumars album Live in Amsterdam, they also performed together at the North Sea Jazz Festival"
"For the enthusiastic people and the novice of MPB can I wholeheartedly recommend this album. This CD is personally, for me in the top ten best albums of 2013!"
There was a special chemistry between pianist Mike del Ferro and Ceumar in the Volga. The singer and guitarist sang and played sophisticated Brazilian listening songs where Del Ferro wove beautiful jazz lines through

The result is exciting and especially melodious improvised jazz with traditional Latin American samba influences.

The lack of musical clichés music also transcends with ease the journalistic expectations and this album is for me a highlight from Del Ferro's work
