With a title that espouses truth in advertising, guitarist Jack Jezzro has put together a concept album of suave Brazilian music for small ensemble. With his acoustic nylon string model capturing the essence, Jezzro’s program sways with the tropical breeze and basks in the serene Latin moonlight. With complementary interludes from piano, flute and flugelhorn, the guitarist surrounds his features with lively rhythm accompaniment. Citing Earl Klugh, Pat Metheny and Lee Ritenour as three of his more prominent influences, the guitarist provides clear fingerstyle articulation that forms lovely melodies. A native of West Virginia and a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, Jezzro has settled in Nashville, Tennessee to take on the challenge of exploring good music through a variety of styles. On Brazilian Nights Jezzro moves comfortably through his compositions with a genuine feel for the scene and a thorough grasp of the whole package.
