Claudio Roditi - O Sonho

 

“Bons Amigos is a collection of light, breezy compositions from several generations of Brazilian composers. Lilting sambas and gentle bossa novas make up the bulk of this disc, resulting in a relaxed but heartfelt jam for Brazilian trumpeter/flugelhornist Claudio Roditi and friends.”

In the cover photo of his new album Bons Amigos, Claudio Roditi sits surrounded by “good friends” indeed – the various horns that he has used to make extraordinary music, on both sides of the equator, during a career that spans more than four decades. And on this disc, he’s making a little more of that music than on any recording in recent years. “I felt like playing a few more notes on this album,” says the 65-year-old trumpet legend. “I played double-time more often than I normally do, and there are some solos where I’m taking some liberties that I usually don’t. It was just my choice on this album. Very often, I equate playing a lot of notes with ‘showing off’ – and I’m not a player who likes to show off.”
