If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.
You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...
Adolfo is always happy to record a thematic collection of songs, and does so presently with the music of Wayne Shorter. The results are what one would expect with one master interpreting another, like reading Goethe by lightning storm. Adolfo chooses mostly songs from the 1960s and ends the disc with his original composition, "Afosamba" which both captures and sums up the entire project by presenting Adolfo's beautifully light touch in composing and arranging, featuring trumpeter Jesse Sadoc, whose presence is potently felt throughout the recording. Adolfo's interpretation of "Footprints," features vocals by Ze Renato, who wordlessly sings Shorter's cherished melody, before affording guitarist Lula Galvao much deserved solo space. "Prince of Darkness" from Miles Davis' The Sorcerer (Columbia, 1967) is given a Baiao restyling by Adolfo, giving wings to Marcelo Martins' soprano saxophone solo. Adolfo divides his time between acoustic and electric piano, always playing this his famous light touch that has so thoroughly informed his playing from the beginning.
