Editorial Reviews

2008 album from one of the most successful German Pop stars who is, oddly enough, a Jazz musician! Till Br”nner is an exceptionally gifted trumpeter who succeeds in directly touching people with his beautiful melodies that travel a musical path between Hard Bop, Honky-Tonk and hit parade and lends a distinctive new sound to Jazz - with brilliant clarity and undisguised expressiveness. On Rio, Bronner is joined by guest musicians like Annie Lennox, Sergio Mendes, Aimee Mann, Milton Nascimento, and Kurt Elling. A relaxed summer-album with Brazilian music produced by Larry Klein, an all-star-album between Jazz, Bossa Nova, Samba and Pop. Universal.

There are good records that you will play for a few days, maybe a few weeks before they fade to black. Then you have that great record that you have been playing for weeks. The weeks turn into months and before you know it you have a future classic in your possession that you can't put down.
Till Brönner's new release "Rio" would belong to the latter.
"Calling Till Brönner the new aspiring German trumpet talent is obsolete, since he has sold more records than any other German jazz musician. He plays big time now and is well known on the New York jazz circuit, which itself is top of the crop".- ME SOUNDS/Rolling Stone.
Born in 1971 in Viersen, Germany and raised in Rome, Italy, Till experienced his outset with the help of Louis Armstrong and Charlie Parker
In the smooth jazz arena there are limited opportunities for exposure. Other than artists such as Chris Botti, Rick Braun and Greg Adams, the list becomes very short. Till is definitely in a very elite group of specialized musicians.
On this album are performing guest-musicians like Melody Gardot, Kurt Elling, Annie Lennox, Sergio Mendes, Aimee Mann, Milton Nascimento, Vanessa da Mata and Luciana Souza.
As the title "Rio" may suggest, the young, handsome and talented 37 year old trumpeter makes an easy dive into the Brazilian music world, recreating in the studio the sensual vibe of bossa nova, taking inspiration from some of the greatest Brazilian classic tunes by legendary Brazilian arists.
You may be a little puzzled by the unlikely mix of Annie Lennox and Milton Nascimento as lead vocalists on "Mysterios", a Nascimento composition, and you may like Till's breathy trumpet sound that stops attractively short of sloppy.

For anyone not familiar with the work of Til Bronner, this CD is a great introduction, especially for those who love jazz with a samba beat. It's one of the ten to take with you to the "desert island." His sound is reminiscent of Chet Baker's, and the guest is a compliment to the project.

I find this CD somewhat difficult to review, despite my love of bossa nova. I was drawn to it because of the outstanding selection featuring Vanessa da Mata, but enjoy many of the other selections as well. But the vast array of guest vocalists make it a little hard to discuss this as a unified recording, rather than as a group of individual selections. Perhaps perfect for the single song download world! Till Bronner can obviously play! It is hard to resist comparing him to Chris Botti, another trumpeter that can obviously "play", regardless of his specific choice of genre. The "sidemen" (a horrible classification really!) play well throughout, and some of the selections are absolutely fantastic. As I said, I particularly like the number with Vanessa da Mata, as well as the Melody Gardot number. Aimee Mann's low register is gorgeous, and it's always hard to go wrong with Luciana Souza. I wish I could give this 5 stars, but overall I just find it a little inconsistent, and also at times wishing Bronner would just let go instead of always being carefully melodic (a feature that I usually like). This CD makes me want to hear him in a more straight-ahead recording, just to see where he really stands. In total, a nice genre crossing CD.
