Luciana Souza: Storytellers

Read "Storytellers" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Ci sono dischi che raggiungono un equilibrio così prezioso tra gli ambiti strumentali e vocali (in un clima di lirismo, ricchezza interpretativa e freschezza) che regalano nuove emozioni a ogni ascolto e non vorresti staccartene. È quanto accade all'album appena pubblicato da Luciana Souza, inciso con la WDR Big Band diretta da Vince ...

Fleurine: Brazilian Dream

Read "Brazilian Dream" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

L'amore per la musica brasiliana di Fleurine Verloop era ben chiaro in Meant to Be, il debutto del 1995 della cantante olandese. Una fiamma insita nel suo background (una linea familiare è portoghese e lei parla fluentemente la lingua lusitana) che è sempre rimasta accesa, come dimostrano quasi tutti i suoi album (in particolare San Francisco ...

Sambaranda: Delirios Vol. 1

Read "Delirios Vol. 1" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

Sambaranda is an cappella group out of Sao Paulo, Brazil that melds a delicious tropical flavor with the very best of vocal jazz. Their first release was a Christmas album in November 2017. Although their second, Delirios Vol. 1, came out in July of 2017, it only recently arrived here, thanks to a copy sent from ...

Gaia Wilmer: Migrations

Read "Migrations" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Sa coniugare feeling e complessità di scrittura Gaia Wilmer, sassofonista e compositrice brasiliana al suo debutto da leader. L'idea di formare quest'ottetto è nata nel primo anno di frequenza ai corsi di composizione jazz del Berklee College of Music e s'è concretizzata nel dicembre 2016 (dopo un annuncio su Kickstarter), durante il secondo anno di master ...

Mônica Vasconcelos: Brazil Songs of Resistance

Read "Mônica Vasconcelos: Brazil Songs of Resistance" reviewed by Duncan Heining

A tanned, beautiful young woman in a skimpy bikini walks through the lapping sea waters on the edge of a sun-soaked beach. Soft music plays, its shifting beat following her footsteps. It's a cliché, of course, but a powerful one when it comes to thoughts (male, mainly) of Brazil and its music. UK-based Brazilian ...

Steven Kirby: Illuminations

Read "Illuminations" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Illuminations--guitarist Steven Kirby's third album, following Point Of Balance (Challenge Records, 1998) and North Lights (Challenge Records, 2003)--is both true to previous form and highly expansive. Kirby uses elements of the sonic palette(s) that helped to color his earlier work, referencing the probing lyricism of John Abercrombie and the straight-to-the-heart melodic qualities shot through in classic ...

Guinga: Porto da Madama

Read "Porto da Madama" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Brazilian music is an immediately recognizable genre with a distinct sense of melancholy underlying its beautiful melodies and harmonies. Indeed, the poetic lyrics, the soft edges of the language itself and the particular chordal colorings chosen virtually define that which is “Brazil." Although this exceedingly attractive music has naturally been picked up by musicians ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
