Session Details: 

Lordisco and jazzdiscography list multiple instruments for people, without saying which tracks they play which. For example, Hermeto Pascoal is listed as playing bass on "Lost in the Stars" which leads to assume that Bob Cranshaw sits out that track, but there is not indication of that. Likewise, Cranshaw is listed as playing bass and electric bass, with no specification as to which tracks he is electric and which he is not.

It's difficult to determine exactly how many tracks, total, that Hermeto Pascoal played on this session without hearing the session itself. Jazzdiscography.com says he only played guitar and bass, and on only two tracks. lordisco playing flute, guitar and bass but only indicates the specific tracks for bass and guitar, not flute. Jazzdisco.org lists all three instruments for HP, but no indication on tracks. In an attempt to use the most specific information at hand, I have put him as playing flute as all the tracks (which seems to make sense--he isn't listed as playing guitar or bass on his own composition, so it would be strange if jazzdiscography.com was saying he sat out completely on it) and using the info from lordisco and jazzdiscography.com for when he also plays bass and guitar

Also, the guitarist mentioned only as "Theo" is confusing. After some preliminary research, I suspect that this would be Theo de Barros, since he plays guitar and was in a band with Hermeto Pascoal in the sixties with Airto Moreira. I couldn't find any other Theo in brasilian jazz. If somebody else has a better answer, that would be great. -JS
