Gorgeous. Five parts of the same current. A river for all seasons.

About the Album

Featuring a great jazz quintet, "River" plays with dynamics and textures to reflect on the natural contrasts between the apparent minimalistic stillness of a river’s waters and the intensity of life and currents under its surface.

Audiograph, the first album of drummer Luiz Ebert and pianist Fidel Cuellar, is a venture to musically capture contrasting portraits of life and people in New York City: a busy street in Harlem on a hot summer night, the quiet contemplation of the Hudson river during winter, the fantasy and tension of a twirling ballerina, the chaotic roar of highway traffic. Playing with textures, layers, form and improvisation, yet rich in melodies, more than a jazz album, Audiograph is a call to see through our ears.

Personnel

Livio Almeida: saxophones; Will Caviness: trumpet; Ian Stapp: bass; Luiz Ebert: drums, percussion, compositions; Fidel Cuéllar: piano, compositions, arrangements.

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.
