Lili Araujo - Casa Aberta (2012)


Em segundo disco, a cantora, compositora e arranjadora carioca confirma a boa estréia quatro anos antes. Co-autora de seis das 11 faixas. Lili se cercou de músicos de sua geração para uam MPB de pegada jazzística e ainda contou com a canja do veterano João Donato no clássico “Não tem nada não”. Site G1 do GLOBO - por Antônio Carlos Miguel, 24 de Dezembro de 2012.

Samba, jazz, bossa nova. As musicas, letras e a voz de Lili Araujo se harminizam em cada cancão deste novo trabalho qua conta com composições de João Donato, Marcos Valle, Chico Pinheiro, Paulo Neves, Ivan Lins, entre outros nomes ícones da música brasileira, alem da própria Lili que coloca sua assinatura em Vai Saber, Casa aberta, Sinceridade, Pode ir, Pra se lembrar de mi, na produção e na mixagem do CD. Gravado nos estúdiod Tenda da raposa por Carlinhos Fuchs e enrique Vilhena, e no Madre Musica, por Daniel Musy.Por Danielli Marinho.

Cantora e compositora carioca, Lili Araujo descende da linhagem nobre de Joyce e Rosa Passos. Não é por acaso que Joyce avaliza o segundo álbum de Araujo, Casa Aberta, em texto escrito para o encarte do CD. O samba que abre o disco, exaltando a alma africana da Bahia, Negro Coração (Alegre Corrêa e Raul Boeira), poderia figurar no repertório de qualquer álbum mais recente de Joyce pelo balanço que remete de imediato ao cancioneiro desta conterrânea de Araujo. Quatro anos após lançar seu (bom) disco de estreia, Arribação (Oficina Records, 2008), trabalho em que filtrou o samba e o choro pela estética do jazz, a artista continua envolvendo a música brasileira em atmosfera jazzy, sem jogar nota fora, sem abrir espaço para improvisos exagerados. A boa influência do jazz é perceptível em todo o disco, mas notadamente em certas passagens de Até Quando Durar (Daniel Santiago e Mauro Aguiar) e da faixa-título Casa Aberta (Lili Araújo), destaques do disco produzido pela própria cantora (e cada vez melhor compositora) com o guitarrista Daniel Santiago. O piano de João Donato imprime em Não Tem Nada Não (João Donato, Eumir Deodato e Marcos Valle, 1973) o tom latino típico do músico. A faixa é outro trunfo de disco que reitera o  apego de Araujo ao samba, ritmo recorrente ao longo das 11 faixas de Casa Aberta. Um desses sambas, Não Tem Perdão, é da safra inicial de Ivan Lins, parceiro de Ronaldo Monteiro de Souza no tema lançado por Leny Andrade no álbum Alvoroço (EMI-Odeon, 1973). Outro, Onde Estiver (Chico Pinheiro e Paulo Neves), é cantado em ritmo veloz por Araujo em fina demonstração de sua destreza vocal. Um terceiro, Vai Saber (Lili Araujo), confirma a evolução da compositora, que também assina Pra se Lembrar de Mim, balada interiorizada (e menos envolvente no confronto com outros temas do disco). No todo, Casa Aberta hospeda a boa influência do jazz (e de Joyce) na música brasileira, sinalizando a desenvoltura de Lili Araujo em gênero hoje mais recebido no Exterior do que na sua humilde residência. Entre com ouvidos abertos para o samba jazzy.... Por Mauro Ferreira - Blog Notas Musicais 25 de Novembro de 2012

Dave Douglas & Uri Caine - Present Joys (2014)


Source: greenleafmusic

“Present Joys” brings Douglas and Caine together for an intimate but exploratory outing inspired by “The Sacred Harp” tradition. The pair take on five pieces from shape-note tunebooks, as well as several new Douglas compositions undertaken in the same vein. These ten pieces engage Douglas’ trumpet and Caine’s piano in a captivating conversation full of memorable melodies and intricate digressions.

“I’ve always loved the Sacred Harp songs and started thinking about how to do them in the wake of ‘Be Still,’” Douglas says.

“Playing duo is a special challenge, especially when accompanying a singer or horn player,” says Caine. “The pianist is often responsible for keeping the groove happening as well as creating textures for the soloists. There is also a lot of freedom in playing duo as well as the chance to create a dialogue with another musician, which is a lot of fun with a musician like Dave.”

“The Sacred Harptunes are very heartfelt pieces, and I had no intention to play them with any irony,” says Douglas. “I think the music is really beautiful and hopefully the way that we play them allows the tunes to ring through in a way that jazz listeners and ‘Sacred Harp’ fans will appreciate and value.”

Jean-Philippe Grégoire - Sounds from the Delta (2014)


From Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club de France to the American jazz players who immigrated to immerse themselves in its vibrant musical scene, Paris has been an epicenter of haute jazz culture. Jean-Philippe Grégoire has been a staple of the Paris jazz scene for many years and on his debut Big Round Records release SOUNDS FROM THE DELTA the guitarist/composer presents a refined and inspired hybrid of French and American jazz styles. 

Grégoire's works show a diverse compositional style, ranging from driving and syncopated rhythmic structures to smooth and swaying melodic textures. But even the slower-tempo pieces peak with high-energy improvisations, pulling influences from his rock, blues, and classical roots which combine to form a singular fusion. 

Jean-Philippe Grégoire began his classical studies at the Conservatory of Marseille, under Régis Campo, receiving top awards there including the Henri Tomasi's Composition prize and the SACEM prize. In 2008, he went to the Paris Conservatory to study Jazz Performance. Breaking onto the Paris jazz scene, Grégoire began performing in groups including the Julian Getreau 4tet at some of the finest clubs and festivals in Paris, including Duc des Lombards, Le Basier Salé, and Jazz Festival of Flavors.
