Heart Of Brazil: A Tribute To Egberto Gismonti
'Heart of Brazil' features Daniels with the top-class trio of pianist Josh Nelson, bassist Kevin Axt and drummer Mauricio Zottarelli, plus the Grammy Award-winning Harlem Quartet. With new arrangements by Ted Nash, Kuno Schmid and Josh Nelson, 'Heart of Brazil' collects songs from Gismonti's classic early 1970s albums on EMI Records.
The album was produced by Resonance president George Klabin, who has known Daniels since the 1960s and recorded him with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra at the Village Vanguard in New York City. Klabin has long felt Gismonti's work has been under-appreciated and that there was no one better to pull off an incredible tribute to the Brazilian maestro than Eddie Daniels. Gismonti says in his interview with acclaimed author James Gavin, "When I heard the record I felt immense joy...The repertoire spans a rich period of my composing. What a great present for my seventy years of life."
