Paulo Brioschi: M

Paulo Brioschi, known as "Bira", is a young and talented young Brazilian musician who shows in this first solo CD not only a talented bassist, composer and arranger, but also an uncommon despise for the commercialism which has been omnipresent in our times. Very few references to the easy discourse of funk/rock/blues are found in his work, being one of those few references a small and dispensable use of a drum machine, on one track.

Gathering compositions ranging from genres so varied as the blues, the samba, the Bossa Nova, the ballad, along with influences from Chamber Music, Moorish/Iberian and Caribbean cultures, all with the jazz idiom serving as the vehicle for the presenting of these ideas, "Musico" represents a nice summary from what we call "Brazilian jazz".

Brioschi doesn’t improvise in his solo CD, what seems a counter-sense. Anyway, the work is enriched by the participation of an extensive and impressive list of creative soloists lead by Bocato (a young master of the trombone, heavily influenced by Raul de Souza, who has been known since his work with Arrrigo Barnabé’s band, having recently issued his own CD).

All in all, a must have CD for those who want to have a good collection of Brazilian instrumental music. Even if the solos don’t go for the last consequences as we are used to listen in modern jazz, they keep a fluent and coherent development, and the overall compositional/instrumental/arranging/swinging tone is enough to recommend Brioschi’s work.
