Fingers is a world fusion music album recording by AIRTO MOREIRA released in 1973 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. AIRTO MOREIRA - Fingers. Filed under World Fusion By AIRTO MOREIRA.

Fingers is really is a masterpiece from Airto Moreira, one of the progenitors of jazz fusion, with lots of help from future members of the Uruguayan group Opa and, of course, his wife Flora Purim. It is less out than his solo records up to this point but still retains enough traces of his wild urges toward surprise and experimentation to keep things interesting.
