Fiona's Comments

A sublime piano trio album. Though the compositions source from Brazilian music, the result is deliciously understated piano jazz, the kind that entices the ear and keeps it wanting more. Fantastic.

About the Album

Brazilian Trio is a masterful amalgamation of musician/composer/arranger friends dedicated to perpetuating the artful blend of Brazilian classical music and jazz. The trio consists of pianist Helio Alves, bassist Nilson Matta and drummer Duduka Da Fonseca. Each member contributed an inspired composition to the project. Duduka’s piece is the enchanting “Isabella” – “a lil’ waltz for a lil’ flower,” he shares with pride, “my daughter Isabella. She is 14.”

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.
