Uri Caine: Rio

Brazilian Vignettes

Rio shares much in common with two previous Caine recordings, The Sidewalks of New York and Wagner e Venezia . They are all recordings that are to approximate the sounds of the streets in Rio, New York, and Venice, respectively. The Brazilian music presented here is not the plush Bossa one would expect. It is more of an abstract look at the indigenous popular music, that music that might have less appeal in the United States if entrusted in lesser hands that Caines. The excellent results are a collections of Brazilian vignettes, little Latin confections finely crafted to be had and eaten too. Caine surrounds himself with Brazilian musicians, most particularly percussionists who weave their special magic throughout the music. It is as if we are privy to a Rio radio dial, spinning form one station to the next and listening every once and awhile.
