Helio Delmiro

Emotiva - Odeon 100 Anos 3


A famous sideman (Elis Regina, Dóris Monteiro, Tamba Trio,and so many more, even US artistas the great Sara Vaughn and Michael Franks), Hélio Delmiro demonstrates his imagination and incredibly personal phrasing in his solos, giving time-worn standards here given new vitality and freshness from his incredible lines, as Thelonius Monk's "Epistrophy" and the classic Strayhorn, "Body and Soul". "body.." is no easy composition to reinvent melody from, but this rendition a thing of beauty! His own compositions are in the modal jazz tradition, with even a hint of Chick Corea type composition ("Pro Zeca"), and the too brief opening interlude "Marceneiro Paulo", (which if I remember, is dedicated to his papa) is a lovely composition on solo violão, picked in that tradition that is unique as Brasilian! Breathtaking! The backing quartet also features another legend, Jota Morães on vibrafone and piano, a first rate improviser also. --an Amazon reviewer
