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.

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

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
