A Beautiful Tribute to a Brazilian Master
Carlos from Rio | Rio de Janeiro, RJ Brazil | 02/16/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
Moacir Santos is a master composer, arranger and saxophonist. His shore is Brazilian Jazz with a combo comprising rhythm section + brass in a unique combination which is consistently applied to such original and unconventional compositions.
In the late 60s, Santos went to live in the USA where he's recorded three albums for Blue Note Records. He also became an auxiliary writer for some great arranger just like Billy Byers was to Quincy Jones.
'Ouro Negro' is a 2-CD studio album and the companion DVD from the corresponding video show dedicated to the music of Moacir Santos. It was recorded in 2003-2004 under his direction.
Tracks cover music from Santos' classic album "Coisas" (also available here @Amazon) and also from his three American albums.
Features some Santos' standards like 'Coisa #5' (aka 'Nana'), 'April Child', 'Suk-Cha' and 'Mother Iracema' all with great updated arrangements.
This DVD is an excellent midia for you to watch the best of the best Brazilian musicians currently in action.
