Gravity Tunnel was recorded ca. 1988/89 and originally released in 1991. As the album cover Art portrays, the record merges two musical places home to Miguel Kertsman: Recife, Brazil and New York City. The result is a broad and fun musical journey with African-Brazilian percussion, berimbaus, and ensembles spontaneously merging with soulful vocals, and of course lots of vintage keyboards! Where echoes of Brazilian Music, Classical, Jazz and Symphonic Prog Rock intertwine… A mighty Rio de Janeiro Samba School meeting with analog keyboards and screaming guitars? No problem, check out the title track!
