P-R-E-S-S——Q-U-O-T-E-S: ”Correa, who plays guitar in addition to every percussion instrument ever invented, turned the evening into a Brazilian jazz carnival. The rhythms were exhilarating whether on conga or cuica, the vocals alluring in English or Portuguese.” LEONARD FEATHER – The L.A. Times.

“As for Mayuto, he is a non-stop, one-man rhythm section, adding considerable spice and seasoning, directing and inspiring his combo unostentatiously, and keeping the total sound romantic rather than erotic. It’s a joyful blend—-a challenge to anyone who thinks he or she can sit still.” HARVEY SIDERS – Los Angeles Herald Examiner.

“We suggest that the next time Mayuto performs the seats be removed. We regret that we couldn’t write more today — its very hard to write/think while you are in motion — since we are joining the rest of the audience in a moving, standing ovation (or was that just swaying and clapping). My wife Charlotte, who often accompanies me to these events and was in the past a professional dancer, began swaying after the opening bar of the first song. By the end, she had lots of company.” RICHARD WISEMAN – Beverly Hills News.

“Finally Correa himself, who had done just about everything else during this exhausting hour, took the center stage for a wildly acrobatic tambourine dance.” LEONARD FEATHER – The L.A. Times.

“Besides fielding a cohesive and talented jazz group, Mayuto
manages to sing, play guitar and congas and play various other
percussion instruments. A finer conga player we’ve never heard—Mayuto coaxes rhythms like no other from the congas. Give him a
aguitar and ask him to sing and he is equal to any Brazilian group
we’ve heard, all by himself.” RICHARD WISEMAN – Beverly Hills News.

“Mayuto, You are as brilliant guitarist as you are percussionist.” GILBERTO VERA – MoonflowerCafe.com

In a sentimental mood, body and soul.” Correa sang, “Someone to
Light Up My Life.” BOB COMDEN – L.A. Jazz Scene.

Wow. Your list of accomplishments leaves me “Out of Breath”!!. What an honor to meet you. NANA – MoonflowerCafe.com

Mayuto maravilhoso!! Wow, I knew Mayuto was good, but I never heard him take an unaccompanied solo before…that was
an eye opener. His hands really fly, and he’s got all those
cross-arm chops, too. Would have been fun to see Mayuto jam
with Armando, or maybe with Giovanni Hidalgo. JOSE SIERRA.

Hello Gil, thanks for posting this amazing clip of Mayuto in action.
I have to say, Mayuto, that I have seen the Santana band at least
25 times over the years and have never seen a (conga) solo like
that before. I was blown away with your talent. (Smile Happy). PARK.
