Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Expedition Audio Recommended
These slower pieces are where the group really shines. The full-track sample included in this recommendation is "São Conrado", a lovely composition by Mauricio Einhorn and the final track on the album. It’s a sublime piece...

Jazz pianist Kenny Barron celebrates the music of Brazil on his 2013 studio album, Kenny Barron & the Brazilian Knights. Here, Barron performs a variety of songs from the late Johnny Alf, as well as composer/harmonica player Maurício Einhorn, who also joins Barron on the album. Also joining Barron are such luminaries as trumpeter Claudio Roditi, saxophonist Idriss Boudrioua, drummer Rafael Barata, guitarist Lula Galvao, bassist Sérgio Barrozo, and keyboardist Alberto Chimelli. This is highly engaging Brazilian jazz. ~ Matt Collar
