Reedición japonesa, de 2020, del disco lanzado originalmente en vinilo simultáneamenete en los EEUU y en Francia en 2017 por el sello Newvelle Records, con diferente portada (la de la segunda foto).
Segundo álbum "brasileño" del bajista neoyorquino de jazz John Patitucci (Nueva York, EEUU, 1959), otro gran instrumentista enamorado de la música brasileña desde que entró en contacto con ella, cuando colaboró con Moacir Santos y Oscar Castro Neves en Los Angeles (California) a principios de los 80. Aunque la producción es mucho más modesta que la de su "Mistura fina" de 1995, el resultado musical es realmente excepcional con un brillantísimo acompañamiento del guitarrista israelí Yotam Silberstein (otro profundo admirador y gran conocedor de la música de Brasil) y del percusionista brasileño Rogério Boccato.
"Newvelle Records, the New York based, vinyl-only subscription label, was launched by jazz pianist by Elan Mehler and Parisian, Jean-Christophe Morisseau in 2016. With a high-end, boutique collection that has included digitally recorded, 180g pressings for Frank Kimbrough, Noah Preminger and Jack DeJohnette, the label opens its second season with the iconoclastic bassist, and multiple Grammy winner, John Patitucci's Brazilian tribute collection Irmãos de Fé
Patitucci has been a leader for more than thirty years and in the company of jazz luminaries such as Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea and Roy Haynes. Patitucci has played with artists across all genres from B.B. King to Queen Latifah. Brazilian native and percussionist Rogério Boccato has worked with many top names in jazz including Maria Schneider on The Thompson Fields (Artist Share, 2015), Fred Hersch and Ben Allison, and he has deep roots in the music of his country. On that front, he has collaborated with artists such as Toninho Horta, Moacir Santos, and Vinicius Cantuária, among others. Guitarist Yotam Silberstein, a finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Guitar Competition in 2005, played the Umbria Jazz Festival at the age of twenty-one. He has worked in partnerships with James Moody, David Sanborn, Marcus Miller, Paquito D'rivera, Christian McBride and many others.
It is unlikely that a Brazillian mixed compilation would exclude Antonio Carlos Jobim or Milton Nascimento, and Irmãos de Fé is no exception. But the works of the two native composers have been touched upon so often that they require a refined approach to avoid bromidic repetition and Patitucci's trio is more than up to the task. The title track—a Nascimento composition—opens Side A of the album in a thoughtful and respectful manner. Silberstein's great guitar work on the piece reflects his affinity for the music he honored on his own Brazil (JLP, 2011). Patitucci equals the guitarist's clarity and dexterity with his bass, taking leads and offering support. Another Nascimento piece follows, the more animated "Catavento," followed by a subdued Egberto Gismonti composition "Pr'um Samba." Patitucci's bowed bass lends a somber melody to Jobim's "Olha Maria," accompanying Silberstein's broken chords but a more mainstream jazz sensibility is applied to "Samba do Grande Amor."
Patitucci exhibits the perfect blend of respect for the original intention of these compositions, and the adventurous spirit that allows the trio to put a unique stamp on these works. Patitucci and Silberstein employ acoustic and electric strings to vary the atmosphere and Boccato's proficiency with Brazilian music makes him a perfect choice in subtly knitting the moving parts together. Irmãos de Fé presents an eclectic program, maintaining a strong connection to regional composers while adding a new aural richness to the pieces." Karl Ackermann (All About Jazz, 06.04.2017)
