Fernando Trueba's ‘playlist’: Instrumental Boy | Babelia
After the list dedicated to the Beatles in jazzToday we are going to dedicate one to the jazz versions, perhaps it would be more correct to say simply instrumentals of the songs of Chico Buarque.
Guitarists Paulinho Nogueira and Toninho Horta (this duet with singer Carlos Fernando) and pianists Benjamin Taubkin and Edsel Gomez have devoted entire, excellent records to the music of Chico Buarque.
We start with a version of Javier Colina and Albert Sanz from his precious “Brazilian” album Sampa. And again Brad Mehldau who also likes to version Chico. And the fabulous American trumpet Brian Lynch, with the elegant Bill Charlap on the piano. Anat Cohen, the increasingly Brazilian Israeli saxophonist, is also present.
We closed no less than with the São Paulo Symphony, with the Mantiqueira Band, the big band Brazilian led by sax Nailor Proveta, who does not have to envy anything to any band on the planet.
