Brazilian Trio: Constelacao

Read "Constelacao" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

Duduka Da Fonseca Quintet: Jazz Samba-Samba Jazz

Read "Jazz Samba-Samba Jazz" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Drummer Duduka Da Fonseca is the patron saint of Samba Jazz. He's been singing the virtues of this hybridized form for quite some time, establishing a rhythmic middle ground where both worlds can meet in mutual, musical splendor. In short, he's earned the cymbal halo that floats above his head on the cover of Samba Jazz--Jazz ...

Duduka Da Fonseca Trio: Plays Toninho Horta

Countless others have become ambassadors who spread the wonders of Brazil through their music, and nobody is more qualified to ...

Patty Ascher: Bossa, Jazz 'n' Samba

Read "Bossa, Jazz 'n' Samba" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


In addition to serving as an album title, Bossa, Jazz 'n' Samba could also serve as the defining mantra for a good portion of the albums on the Zoho Music label. While that company has released a wide variety of discs, covering Afro-Cuban cookers (Arturo O'Farrill), rock-solid blues (Ike Turner), and updated takes on the tango ...

Brazilian Trio: Forests

Read "Forests" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone


This exciting recording is a perfect example of the thorough absorption of the Bossa Nova being integrated with the mainstream jazz piano trio. All three members of Brazilian Trio are, in fact, Brazilians but have lived in New York City for decades,settling in the 1970s, '80s and '90s. Pianist Helio Alves is the youngest ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
