Synopsis

Album Description
This compilation makes available on CD, sixty-seven minutes of music featuring highlights from two outstanding recordings by Marcio Montarroyos, Magic Moment and Carioc, as well as a track from Jon Hiseman's, A Night in the Sun. With signature upbeat Montarroyos flair, the tracks on Samba Solstice explore, persuade, and captivate, moving with smooth assurance through a gamut of complex compositions ranging from deeply personal jazz musings to ecstatic musical celebrations. Samba Solstice is endowed with a star-studded cast: musicians Ricardo Silveira to Sergio Dias, Jamil Joanes to Victor Biglione, and more create a conspiracy of excellence. Samba Solstice is flawless, from concept to execution, taking delight in the seemingly limitless boundaries of jazz.As a composer, Montarroyos combines classical and jazz influences with Brazilian folk music, and African rhythms to create a masterful synthesis of big band energy and small group intimacy. His relentless creativity ensures that the compositions and arrangements are fresh and completely original.

CD Reviews

Progressive, uplifting melodic fine music.
Matthew J. Archuleta | DENVER, CO USA | 12/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To those of you that have a convertible or a sports car that pegs the needle at over one hundred miles an hour this CD is NOT for you! T

This music is energizing music that will take your cares away in a wash of sunshine and salty air; thereby distracting you.

The music contains the obscure yet beautiful intonations of the Berimbau and the fine Flügelhorn of Mr. Montarroyos. [Sadly, Mr. Montarroyos passed away].

Favorite cuts are all 67min. and 47sec. of them. Please purchase this CD."
