Hi Fly

Hi Fly was the second recording by the Minneapolis jazz vocal group Rio Nido and was released in 1985. The group changed from a trio to a quartet with the departure of Tom Lieberman and the addition of Roger Hernandez and Dave Maslow. With this release, Rio Nido focused on the vocalese style. The original LP was long out-of-print until being re-released on CD in 2007 by the Japanese label Bittersweet America.
