Composer John Powell's lively score for Rio is an animated comedy from the makers of Ice Age, follows the adventures of a flightless, domesticated macaw as he fights to make his way back to his small Minnesota home town after a calamitous, romance-fueled trip to Brazil that results in a kidnapping, strategically blends traditional, pastoral orchestral motifs with bursts of bossa nova. Powell, who worked on all of the Ice Age sequels, as well as King Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon, is no stranger to animated films, and his work here is both unobtrusive and effective, blending Midwest Americana and sunny tropicalismo into a tasty summer beverage. ~ James Christopher Monger
