A brilliant cross between Flora Purim's '70s work with Chick Corea & Return to Forever (some of the only fusion albums that don't sound terribly dated decades later) and mid-'90s chill-out music, 1995's Speed of Light is one of the Brazilian-born singer's finest albums.

Flora Purim is/was most famous for her Vocals for the Chik Corea Project "Return To Foreve"r . A 5 year jail sentence for trafficking Cocaine stopped her from becoming a more known artist. But she still stayed busy in the Jazz Scene and toured Solo or with her husband and with countless other formations. Recently she took a pretty successful sidestep to the World Music market and co-operated with London Drum 'n Bass artists Marc & Dego of 4 Hero and Bill Laswell, just to name a few.

Brazilian singer Flora Purim's debut album from 1974 is something of a jazz landmark, as no-one had heard anything quite like it before. It contains some original material written by Purim and her husband, percussionist Airto Moreira, with some jazz numbers by George Duke and Stanley Clarke and Brazilian-style songs composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Egberto Gismonti. On & Dreams' Purim used her voice as a musical instrument to create mood, the lyrical content made subservient to the melody.
