Comprising pianist Paul Harrison, bassist Mario Caribé and drummer / percussionist Stuart Brown, Trio Magico have been brought together by their passion for playing Brazilian music. The three musicians have a special rapport from years of performing together in Scotland and internationally in various folk, world and jazz settings.
The music of Egberto Gismonti is like a microcosm of his native Brazil – diverse, joyful, and unique. One of the great legends of the country’s music, the trio present his tunes in a new light – infectious rhythms of the world translated into vessels for inspiring jazz improvisation. At times romantic and ﬁlm-score like, others introspective yet optimistic. There are carnival-like choro rhythms that will, literally, move you, and inspiring melodies that you may find yourself singing for a long time afterwards.
Douglas Robertson and Jane-Ann Purdy, co-producers of the Spotlight Series said: “Trio Mágico combines the talents of three great jazz musicians – keyboard player Paul Harrison, bassist Mario Caribe, and drummer Stu Brown. Their repertoire is drawn entirely from the compositions of Mario’s fellow countryman, the Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Egberto Gismonti. But don’t expect a tribute band. They’ll very much perform their own interpretation of this music”
