brasilian vibes
Arthur Lipner and Nanny Assis

Vibes and Marimba share common African roots with Brazilian percussion. Yet, due to the expense of good quality instruments, in addition to other factors including educational resources, there is very little co-mingling of these instruments in Brazilian jazz or MPB (Brasilian Popular Music). Until now! Lipner’s vibes and marimba are the threads connecting these varied tracks in a beautifully produced recording which makes a huge step in moving his instruments forward in the international music scene. BRSAILIAN VIBES was recorded in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and the US, and mixed in Rio November 2009.

It contains a wide spread of Brazilian styles in addition to American jazz-influenced tracks. Highlights include the jazz classic Four Brothers (with trombonist Wycliffe Gordon scatting!), Mallet Evolution, Monobloco Revolution (Lipner original recorded in Rio with the samba batucada group “Monobloco”, whom he has performed there with live) and the luscious and sensual Eu E A Brisa with Vanessa Falabella on vocals. Musicians on various tracks of this cd include Jazz trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, Brasilian guitarist Nelson Faria, trumpet player Michael Leonhart, Rob Curto on accordion and David Darling on cello.
