Editorial Reviews


A powerhouse bass player. --DownBeat

Product Description

Master bassist and arranger Nilson Matta assembles an all-star American and Brazilian band for a jazz re-imagining of the music from Black Orpheus; both from the groundbreaking 1959 film that introduced much of the world to Brazilian music and from the beloved but lesser-known 1956 stage play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliving a joyous memory March 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard this performed at Dizzie's Club Coca Cola in NYC right after the release of this CD. I was entranced by the music, the musicianship and the singing. This CD brings back the sheer joy of that evening. But you don't have to have gone to Dizzie's to enjoy this--over and over. Mattas reinterprets some of the most beautiful movie music ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rendition of a true classic February 16, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
IMHO Black Orpheus is a real classic of Brazilian music. It takes us back to 'the beginning'. The music is extraordinary. The original film, French version, was also exceptional.
This disc retains the flavor of those early Brazilian moves from samba to bossa and jazz influence. Well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very much recommend September 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Phenomal item. I like it even better than the original soundtrack of Black Orpheus, which is actually often jarring and irritating, whereas this is highly listenable, with very creative renditions of the musical themes. Very much recommend.
