A welcome return to the crypt for world renowned drummer and "golden voiced" singer, percussionist and composer Davide and his five piece band. They will present the finest Brazilian flavoured jazz, inspired by Davide's work and collaboration with some of that country's greatest musicians and reflecting the cultural hotspot of Minas Gereis, Brazil: the land of great artists like Toninho Horta, Milton Nascimento, Beto Guedes and Lo Borges.
The artists Davide has worked with over the course of his career come from different parts of the world and very different musical backgrounds have all contributed to the sound of this band - Steve Winwood, Paul McCartney, Bjork, Marcos Valle, James Galway, Bobby Watson, Roy Ayers, Alex Wilson, Jesus Alemany, Snowboy, Jim Mullen and in particular Toninho Horta and Yuri Popoff
Look forward to two sets of original songs that focus on entwined harmonies and melodies of the Brazils rich musical traditions punctuated by those signature Latin beats.
Features Neil Angilley - Piano & Keys, Paul Booth - Saxes, Flute; Guille Hill - Guitars; Davide Mantovani - Bass; Davide Giovannini - Drums & Vocals.
Album Review - "The hugely engaging nine-track collection ranges from uber-languorous "The Tide" to the pulsating "Baianero". There's plenty of characterful soloing too, including guitarist Guillermo Hill and saxist Paul Booth on album opener "Egberto" and violinist Rudi Berger on "Espelho D'Agua". JAZZWISE Magazine.
"Although contemporary throughout, never the less, there's a timeless feel to the beautiful and mature songs. Davide is as an accomplished and expressive singer as he is a drummer. A CD not to be missed." Blues and Soul Magazine.
