Don Salvador Trio
with Edison Machado and Sergio Barroso

Throughout the 1960s, Brazilian pianist Dom Salvador (aka Salvador da Silva Filho) worked in a series of bossa-samba jazz combos, and professionally backed top-name artists such as Elis Regina, Jorge Ben and Edu Lobo. In the early '60s he jammed with Paul Winter when the West Coast jazzman made his fabled Brazilian pilgrimage, and later formed this outfit, which was a pretty swinging, compact jazz trio. Although some of the tracks on this 1965 album are similar to the fairly commonplace instrumental efforts of contemporary Brazilian acts such as the Tamba Trio, et al, there's also a high proportion of more melodically rich, compelling material, including several romantically graceful themes. Almost all the songs were original compositions, showing Salvador clearly a cut above his Brazilian jazz brethren. Sure, for serious jazz fans this might have its limitations, but in the Brazilian sphere, these sessions definitely stand out. --an Amazon reviewer
