Sao Paulo Underground: Cantos Invisíveis

Read "Cantos Invisíveis" reviewed by Troy Collins

Democratically led by Chicago-based sound explorer Rob Mazurek, São Paulo Underground has been defying genre conventions and musical boundaries for almost a decade. Originally formed with percussionist Mauricio Takara and keyboardist Guilherme Granado during Mazurek's sojourn in Brazil (2000-2005), the ensemble's membership has undergone a subtle change on its fifth album with the addition of Swiss-born ...

Sao Paulo Underground: Cantos Invisíveis

Read "Cantos Invisíveis" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Cantos Invisíveis translates from Portuguese as “invisible corners/songs" or “disappearing corners/songs:" a fitting title for trans-national music that often seems to come from everywhere at once. The international trio's electro-acoustic sound blends music from North and South America, Africa and Asia, including stylistic references from traditional folk, modern jazz, rock and electronica. It's a dense, communal ...

Sao Paulo Underground: Cantos Invisiveis

Read "Cantos Invisiveis" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Rob Mazurek and Black Cube SP: Return the Tides: Ascension Suite and Holy Ghost

Read "Return the Tides: Ascension Suite and Holy Ghost" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

La forte sincerità che si percepisce nella musica di Rob Mazurek (caratteristica che immagino anche chi non ama troppo il cornettista chicagoano faticherà a negargli) è qualcosa che va a volte oltre l'intenzione. È il caso ad esempio del flusso emozionale, catartico, densissimo, di Return the Tides: Ascension Suite and Holy Ghost, disco che ...

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.
