Vinyl LP: Steinar Aadnekvam, Walter Areia, Ivan Do Espirito Santo – ECOLOGY (2014)
The album ECOLOGY gives us three astonishing musicians in a musical meeting recorded in Recife – Brazil, in May 2013.
Virtuoso acoustic guitarist Steinar Aadnekvam from the cold north of Scandinavia here continues his excursions in the hot mud of Pernambucos music scene in this trio together with his notable friends, bassist Walter Areia – from the legendary Brazilian Manguebeat group Mundo Livre S/A and the flutist, saxophonist Ivan Do Espirito Santo. We meet them all three as composers throughout the disc where playful interplay and sparkling improvisations lead our thoughts to Jazz, but the attentive listener will also find the music rich in typical northeastern brasilian styles like Baião, Frévo, Chorinho and even with a touch of rock’n’roll…
