Jovino Santos Neto's New CD

Adventure Music announces the new US release by Brazilian pianist and composer Jovino Santos Neto, Alma do Nordeste (Soul of the Northeast).
After receiving two Latin Grammy nominations in 2004 and 2006, Jovino has returned to Brazil to record a new CD with all original material, inspired by the musical universe of Northeastern Brazil.
Composed after a research trip through the region in 2007, the music was recorded in Rio de Janeiro by Jovino, accompanied by great Brazilian musicians such as Toninho Ferragutti (accordion), Carlos Malta, Marcelo Martins and Eduardo Neves (woodwinds), Marcio Bahia (drums), Gabriel Grossi (harmonica) and several others.

Having established a solid reputation as one of the most important creators in contemporary Brazilian jazz, Jovino once again brings his characteristic blend of energetic grooves, deep harmonies, lyrical melodies and great ensemble playing to the new disc. He explores several musical styles of the Brazilian northeast in his new compositions, including baio, xote, forr, marcha and many more. This release is guaranteed to please all lovers of jazz, Brazilian and Latin music.
