This burning live concert CD captures Rique at his inspired best, starting with the musical but intense solo on the opening track Arpoador". "Julinho" reveals the romantic side of his composing, hitting levels of sensitive sophistication you'd expect from the likes of Yellowjackets and Pat Metheny Group. Earl, Duarte and Taylor show themselves to be "rhythm section deluxe" on the deep latin groove of "Da Baina" and LA swing-funk shuffle of "Morena". "BeBop Kid" starts life as a Brazilian style ballad with Rique's sensitive piano and voice, grows to a grooving bossa feel with a sometimes scat-doubled piano solo, moving to flute, Silveira's hard bopping guitar and a burning bass solo. "Pra Lili" is a 7/4 workout with Pantoja and Taylor sparring in a heated dialogue that relaxes into an inventive solo from Tavaglione, followed by another great solo from Earl. Overall, this is a collection showing the depth of range of Rique's composing and playing, and is sure to please any fan of Latin, Brazilian and R&B flavored jazz.

"Night Prayer" is the highly sought after and hard to find collaboration of Rique and well known worship guitar great Tommy Walker. Among the first of the "excellence in musicality as worship" records that have started to crop up in the last decade or so, "Night Prayer" is a beautiful inspirational CD showing off what two musicians of this caliber with like minds and hearts can do when they are allowed to collaborate on both arrangements and original compositions. The band is a virtual who's who of Los Angeles greats, and is also one of the only times Walker has included guitar synthesizer on a record. It still sounds as fresh today as when it was recorded, and this site is one of the only places you can find it!

Holy, Holy, Holy ( Hymns to a Different Drum )
It's common knowledge these days that Bach and his contemporaries improvised during the performances of their compositions in their day - here's a CD that shows what the great hymns might sound like had their writers written them today and taken an improvisational approach to them as well. Rique uses his unique command of re-harmonization and Latin rhythms to come up with a CD full of unusually innovative arrangements, giving you a fresh listening experience to songs you "thought you knew". With Justo Almario's heart felt playing throughout, the consistent perfection in percussion of Rodrigues, and beautiful bass of Guillermo Guzman (check out his reading of "Amazing Grace" for proof; "Holy, Holy,Holy" will lead you to a place you won't want to leave.

featuring :
Justo Almario: Sax
Rique Pantoja : Piano, Keys and Acoustic Guitar
Walter Rodrigues: Percussion
Guillermo Guzman: Bass
