CD Review: Brazil-native, Antonio Loureiro, Releases 'So'

Antonio Loureiro

A master of vibraphone, drum, percussion, piano, bass, guitar, and vocals, Antonio Loureiro knows how to make lively music with a passionate and playful tone that is unforgettable and spontaneous. The ten-track release is mostly instrumental, but some vocals show up from time to time. There are over one dozen additional guest musicians, which supply a good degree of musical accompaniment on jazzy percussion, playful horns, and classical fusion with various degrees of ethnic elements cropping up, too. The Brazilian roots shine through on every track with lively percussion, playful piano melodies, and a host of fusion elements that scream South American influences. Fans of Brazilian jazz and folk music will love this one. ~ Matthew Forss
