Jon Hiseman’s 1981 Album ‘A Night In The Sun’ on CD
Originally released only on vinyl, this album dates from 1981. The original analogue tapes, recorded in, and rescued from, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil , were lost until recently. After a 4-hour baking in an oven to remove the accumulated moisture that had been attracted to the oxide binder, Jon Hiseman was able to transfer the tapes into the digital domain in pristine condition while they were, literally, still hot.
He flew out to Rio for 10 days in 1981, taking only a few cymbals and a snare drum, to meet some of Brazil’s finest musicians for the first time and play their music. Since they had recorded mainly at night, while sleeping through the heat of the day, the album title had to be… “A Night in the Sun”!

A real gem of an album from this superb drummer/percussionist. Well worth re-discovering as it was first released in 1982 – I believe. Excellent Light Jazz, come Latin come Fusion and easy on the ear. Strong performances throughout from the man himself, on drums – of course, along with Jamil Joanes on Bass, Márcio Montarroyos on Flugelhorn, Ricardo Silveira on Guitar, Lincoln Olivetti on Keyboards and an excellent group of supporting session players. A joy to listen too, I am really pleased to have this back in my collection. Highly recommended.
