Fiona's Comments

A sublime piano trio album. Though the compositions source from Brazilian music, the result is deliciously understated piano jazz, the kind that entices the ear and keeps it wanting more. Fantastic.

About the Album

Brazilian Trio is a masterful amalgamation of musician/composer/arranger friends dedicated to perpetuating the artful blend of Brazilian classical music and jazz. The trio consists of pianist Helio Alves, bassist Nilson Matta and drummer Duduka Da Fonseca. Each member contributed an inspired composition to the project. Duduka’s piece is the enchanting “Isabella” – “a lil’ waltz for a lil’ flower,” he shares with pride, “my daughter Isabella. She is 14.”
