Martini, Rafael - Martelo CD

SKU rdm-733045933841
Great album. Great melodies and arrangements, perfectly played with just the right number of notes. The electronics are well integrated into the the ensemble sound and support the instruments and vice-versa! One of the best contemporary Brazilian albums I’ve heard in the last years!

“This is the newest CD by pianist and composer Rafael Martini who was also pianist of the marvelous Grupo Ramo. He was also pianist and accordion player in the last band of Egberto Gismonti.
Now he is leading his new group, with a line up of piano/synth/vocals, bass clarinet, violin, cello, electronics and drums.
His music is full of charm, and could fit in what people call of chamber-jazz, but made in Brazil. Influences from Egberto Gismonti, Milton Nascimento and Hermeto Pascoal are here, but what you listen to is the genius of Rafael as composer, arranger and musician. If you know Grupo Ramo and liked it, this is for you.”
