Trio da Paz TONIGHT at Dizzy’s!

August 31, 2012

Featuring three of Brazil’s most in-demand musicians, Trio da Paz updates the infectious spirit of jazz-oriented Brazilian music. Formed in 1990 by Romero Lubambo, Nilson Matta and Duduka da Fonseca, the Trio redefines Brazilian Jazz with their harmonically adventurous interactions, daring improvisations and dazzling rhythms. All three are seasoned masters of both jazz and Brazilian music with impressive resumes.
The list of legendary musicians the members of Trio da Paz have recorded and performed with is extensive. A sampling would include guitarist Romero Lubambo’s work with Dianne Reeves, Michael Brecker, Grover Washington, Jr. and Kathleen Battle; bassist Nilson Matta’s work with Joe Henderson, Don Pullen, Yo-Yo Ma and Paul Winter; and Grammy nominee drummer Duduka da Fonseca’s work with Astrud Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim, John Scofield and Tom Harrell. Trio da Paz as a group has recorded and performed with Charlie Byrd, Herbie Mann, Lee Konitz, Kenny Barron and Nana Vasconcelos, among others.
The Trio’s critically acclaimed, multi-faceted debut recording Brazil from the Inside , with special guests Herbie Mann, Claudio Roditi, Joanne Brackeen and Maucha Adnet, received the “Indie” award for best album of the year. Trio da Paz followed that success with a daring and ambitious concept album, an exploration of the well-known themes from Black Orpheus, the soundtrack that set Brazilian music on a new course.
Their third release, Partido Out, is a riveting mix of spirited original compositions embracing the full spectrum of rhythms, fusing jazz and Brazilian music in a most fresh and exciting way. This CD won the Jazz Journalists Association award of “The best brasilian jazz album of the year” in 2002. Tonight you can enjoy the sounds right here in your hometown! Join us at Dizzy’s for three sets that will transport you.
