JAZZ: Bossa Nova, LATIN: Brazilian Jazz
O Som Do Jazz (the sound of jazz) started in Florida with the team of David and Andrea Manson. Andrea came to the U.S. from Rio de Janeiro and married her trombonist/composer husband in 2002. They were only married a few months when David heard Andrea singing at home and wondered, âWhy donât we form a band to perform Bossa Nova?â
Time went by as other projects came first, but eventually they connected with São Paulo keyboardist Regis Moreira in nearby Sarasota. Regis had a long history with Brazilian music and had even performed with Elis Regina. His longtime friend and drummer, Roberto Bertoni, joined along with Curitiba bassist Ademar Fonseca. At this point, the group could finally create the authentic Brazilian groove that often eludes U.S. musicians. With the addition of a couple jazz musicians and guitarist Alfredo Rivero, the band was up and running.
O Som Do Jazz has performed at the Pensacola JazzFest, Salvador Dali Museum, Historic Asolo Theatre, Jazz Brasil, Brail Arts Festival and at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, among others. The band enjoys audiences that sing and dance with them. "I know that American audiences are being respectful when they quietly listen to us in concert, but I always encourage Brazilians in the audience to move and sing along with us. Then the Americans join in. Music is too powerful a force to be a passive participant." says Andrea.
O Som Do Jazz has deeply explored Brazilian music focusing on the Bossa Nova known in Brazil, rather than the exported versions that came to the U.S. The group also performs the cousins of Bossa Bova, including the Bahian-flavored music of Baden Powell and MPB (popular music of Brazil). A common love of jazz has resulted in improvisation, but always in moderation to balance the song forms.
The composers on this CD represent some of the greatest songwriters of the 20th c. Besides the genius of Tom Jobim, we find music by Luiz Bonfá, Baden Powell, Carlos Lyra, Djavan, Edu Lobo, Sergio Mendes, Pedro Caetano, Antonio Carlos, Jocafi and Marcos Valle. On six selections we have the lyrics of Vinícius de Moraes, the Poet Laureate of Brazilian music. All of the selections on this CD are sung in Portuguese since Bossa Nova flows better in its original language. Luckily, the mood and meaning of this music transcends language.
Andreaâs voice has a naturalness and ease heard rarely today. Free of clichés and affected style, her voice is gorgeous and real. With a degree in architecture, Andrea had no professional singing experience before joining O Som do Jazz, but she grew up with music. Andrea says, "When I was a little girl, my parents had a large group of friends that had lots of parties. In almost all of them Uncle Wilson went to the piano and played all those songs. I did not realize that I knew them so well until David talked me into singing." This once-reluctant singer has made a strong impression on those who love Bossa Nova.
Here is Infinita Bossa, the endless and infinite Bossa Nova that will always touch our hearts.
