Rachel Therrien in wave with new CD "Pensamiento"

Explore “Pensamiento”, the new album from trumpeter Rachel Therrien


Rachel Therrien is proud to present ‘Pensamiento’, her third album as a leader. Originally released in the summer of 2016, the album is now available on iTunes and internationally.

“Pensamiento” presents a fusion of Colombian rhythms from both Pacific and Atlantic cultures, mixed with the jazz philosophy of conversation and improvisation. The album features a dynamic ensemble of 13 musicians from different towns across Colombia and was recorded over the course of four days at Quantica Music Studios of Santiago Jimenez and Mauro Castillo in Bogota. Currulao, Abosao, Mapale and Tamborito are some of the rhythms featured on the 11 pieces composed and/or arranged by Rachel Therrien. “This inspiration originally came from a one month tour I did all over Colombia with the Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra,” she says, adding, “before we left Montreal, I had a thought, a vision (“Pensamiento”) to record something of my own at the end of the tour with local musicians.”

With a strong knowledge of authentic Atlantic Culture, as opposed to the more commercialized version found in North America, she had a clear path of inspiration. But the real “sparkle” of the record came within the first days of the tour when she discovered the Pacific Culture at the Feria de Cali during the Pacific day. (El dia del Pacifico). It was then that she decided to honor those lesser known rhythms by creating a project presenting those two poles of the rich Colombian Culture.

The musicians of “Pensamiento” include: Jacobo Velez - Sax & Voice, Carlos Peralta - Guitar & Voice, Holman Alvarez - Piano & Voice, Javier Pinto - Bass & Voice, Ramon Berrocal - Drum & Voice, La Wey - Percussion & Marimba & Voice, Juan Carlos Arrechea Mina - Percussion & Marimba & Voice, Humberto Barrios Madiedo - Percussion, John Edward Arrechea Mina - Percussion, Rachel Therrien - Trumpet, Composition & Arrangements, Chongo - Percussion, Santiago Jimenez - Tiple & Voice, Mauro Castillo - Trombone.


Trumpeter, composer, and bandleader, Rachel Therrien already boasts an enviable CV and is considered one of the most promising jazz musicians, playing in a variety of music styles and enriching her talent with experiences from many different cultures. Winner of the 2015 TD Grand Prize Jazz Award at the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the 2016 Stingray Jazz Rising Star, she has shared stages in clubs, concerts and TV shows all around North and South America and the Caribbean with many world-class musicians.

Therrien holds a bachelor’s degree in jazz performance from University of Montreal, a degree in arts management, a certificate from Instituto Supérior de Arte, in Havana-Cuba and she was selected to participate in 2012, to the Banff Center Jazz and Creative Music workshop held by Dave Douglas and Vijay Iyer. She has worked with a large number of mentors and teachers including Ron DiLauro, Elpidio Chappotin, Laurie Frink, John McNeil, Jonathan Finlayson, Clarence Penn, Ralph Alessi, and many more.

Her quintet with Simon Page on bass, Charles Trudel on Piano, Alain Bourgeois on drums and Benjamin Deschamps on sax, has released two albums, “On Track” (2011) and “Home Inspiration” (2014).  Since the release of the second album on the Multiple Chord Music  label, she has toured as a bandleader in Mid-Ouest USA, Mid-Canada (Ontario), and New York City, in a list of clubs and Festivals. Rachel will also continue to host the Montreal Jazz Composers Series, an event that she founded in 2013 to contribute to Montreal’s jazz community. She is now based in New York City.

Ismael East Carlo presents with Bobby Matos a compilation of spoken word and Afro Latin Jazz ¨PROVOCATEUR¨

Café con Bagels began with a tip jar on the streets of Silver Lake in Los Angeles, the art city of California. This is where our Provocateur Avant Garde approach to music, spoken word, a dance music was created, what fun!

Provocateur is the product of observation to the injustices brought about because of the inhumanity to man. And as well love, for what is life without love?

Ismael ‘East’ Carlo, a stage, TV, and movie actor with forty years experience has appeared in countless productions in all mediums.

Bobby Matos and Ismael ‘East’ Carlo are transplants of New York City. (Bobby’s from the Bronx, Ismael from Manhattan. ) Bobby’s approach is music, Ismael is more the observer, which is why he became an actor and now dedicates himself to writing. He wrote most of the words on this CD, a good combination, Latin Jazz and spoken word, PROVOCATIVE.

The musicians on this CD brought their talents and contributions by way of creativity and wanting to share their emotions to that that Bobby and Ismael had written. This is what makes this such a different piece of work. It’s raw, it’s real, and it brings elements to which we look for answers, and perhaps there are no answers, but we know the answer by way of our emotions, and that is the beauty of the soul speaking through music, Latin Jazz, Ismael’s and Bobby’s way, with an Avant Garde open mind Provocateur approach.

Viva The Latin Jazz!!

Brazzamerica CD Release Show Thurs., Dec. 15th Sets 8 & 10 pm @ Zinc Bar, New York

CD Release Show

@ Zinc Bar
82 West 3rd Street

Greenwich Village New York 10012
212-477-ZINC (9462)

Cidinho Teixeira-Piano
Leco Reis-Bass
Edson Ferreira-Drums


In the fresh sounds of Brazzamerica, three veteran Brazilian-American musicians
tell their life story in the universal language of great music.

What can you expect from Brazzamerica? The name says it all. “We wanted to show the flavor of the music, we wanted a name that would say: We play Brazilian music, jazz, and American music,” explains Brazzamerica bassist Leco Reis. Following their goal of expressing themselves with something more personal than simply familiar Brazilian music, they created a harmonious and intriguing blend reflecting “not just our experience as Brazilians who came to the U.S., but how our music changed from living here. Our music tells our story.”
On their self-titled debut recording, Brazzamerica, pianist Cidinho Teixeira, bassist Leco Reis, and drummer Edson Ferreira display an exciting level of telepathy, communication, and understanding in their musical interactions. Such synchronicity can’t be forced, only developed over time. The threesome has been gigging steadily in New York for the past five years, a rare luxury these days, and the result is this CD full of delightful music that will leave listeners wishing for more.
All three are Brazil born and enjoyed striking musical success in their native land before making the move to the U.S. While Brazzamerica is basically a collective, with each member contributing ideas and arrangements, bassist Leco Reis and drummer Edson Ferreira have the utmost respect for their senior colleague, pianist Cidinho Teixeira, who composes much of their repertoire. “He’s been a force in Brazilian music for so long, he has his own identity and he inspires us,” Reis declares.
Pianist Cidinho Teixeira gained renown in his native Brazil before moving to the U.S. two decades ago. To this day, he is so beloved that the cream of the Brazilian music crop is likely to show up to pay their respects at Teixeira’s gigs.
An in-demand composer, arranger, and pianist, Teixeira has extensive global touring and recording experience, accompanying renowned musicians such as Gilberto Gil, Djavan, Lene Andrade, Gal Costa, Simone, and Harry Belafonte. The pianist has recorded with cult favorites like singers Mark Murphy and Blossom Dearie.
Teixeira has released a half-dozen albums in his own name, ranging from solo and duo efforts to large ensembles, from studio recordings to live at Zinc Bar. Long acclaimed by fellow musicians for his prodigious rhythm chops, Teixeira was inspired to share his expertise by writing a book on the subject, “Brazilian Rhythm on the Keyboard.”
Bassist Leco Reis has been in demand on New York’s music scene for more than 10 years. In addition to Brazilian and jazz, listeners are likely to catch him gigging in contemporary improvised music settings. A Berklee College of Music grad with an advanced degree from Queens College, Reis is now on the music faculty of Sacred Heart University.
Triple-threat Edson Ferreira is a talented multi-tasker. Besides playing drums, he is a brilliant percussionist and producer with more than 20 years experience. He studied at Sao Paulo Conservatory and has played concerts, clubs and festivals worldwide, both as a leader and as an in-demand sideman.
The tunes on Brazzamerica are a mix of Teixeira originals and Brazilian music standards. In choosing the material, the threesome wanted to include Brazilian songs but wanted to avoid the presenting the bossa nova style as it was played in the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s. They aimed for “something with a swing to it, and a good groove. It had to be good to listen to and fun to play,” Leco Reis points out.
Bursting with energy and rough elegance, Brazzamerica’s sound has a deceptive simplicity, full of the interactions that result from a total of well over a century of collective experience among the three. CD highlights include:
The lively opener, “Quintessencia,” sets the mood and promises good things to come. It’s a great introduction to the light-handed drummer Edson Ferreira. The trio’s delightful interplay and strong solos prove they’re all on the same wavelength, and it’s a very cool one.
“So What/Samba Do Carioca Wav” is an imaginative take on one of the most beloved and widely recognized melodies in jazz, Miles Davis’ “So What,” from the legendary albumKind of Blue.
“Vera Cruz” is elegant yet lighthearted, with a compelling subtle drive. If only it were longer! We could listen to the trio go to town on this groove all day long. Elegance is audible again in the deliberately paced “Canario,” and the stately “Cecilias,” while “Samba Da Lira” evokes a day at the beach with a vibe so relaxed you can practically imagine the sound of gently lapping waves.
Rhythm is the star in “Lim Sim,” featuring a great bass line, with Reis and Teixeira in tight synch, supported by Ferreira’s subtle percussion. There’s also plenty of dynamic soloing on this intriguing tune.
Teixeira trips the light fantastic on the keys on “Cev Mar”; there’s a gorgeous arco bass opening to the hypnotic “Passarim”; the energetic “Ginga Do Mane” is a high-energy cooker that’s imaginative and engaging. Bass also makes a strong but subtle statement in “Mariama.” “A Ra” has a lilting melody that sounds crisp and fresh, building up to a big finish; “Imagen” opens with great drive, and the rest of the tune lives up to the mood set from the get-go.
Drawing on styles explored and lessons learned through their extensive and varied life history, Brazzamerica has an exciting story to tell within this elegant and inspired new CD.

Modern musicians living in New York City -- those with their antennae up and with the open-mindedness to soak in their musical surroundings -- are invariably the beneficiaries of what the city’s former mayor David Dinkins once referred to as “a gorgeous mosaic.”
Rather than depicting the city as a melting pot, in which myriad cultures blend into one homogenized mass of assimilation, Dinkins talked about the beauty of keeping rich cultures together, side by side, in his Inaugural Address of 1990. And so, it is possible, in walking through different neighborhoods in the boroughs of NYC, each with its own distinctive character, to experience Puerto Rican plena and bomba, Dominican merengue and bachata, Colombian cumbia, Peruvian festejo and landó and various other rhythms from the African diaspora in their pure form. And for eager musicians like Greg Diamond, those sounds and rhythms are bound to seep in.
A self-described ‘hybrid musician,’ guitarist-composer Diamond grew up in Queens, and later in a suburb of New York City, with a rich musical heritage in his own household, before he began experiencing the cornucopia of sounds the city had to offer. “I’m half Eastern European Jewish and half Colombian. My father’s a New Yorker, born and raised. He was an opera singer who studied classical piano at Juilliard, so I was listening to that music growing up. And my mother is Colombian, so I definitely grew up with that component as well.”
Spending two years in Colombia after graduating from high school was a kind of roots journey that led him deeper into his appreciation of Latin music. “When I moved back to the city in ’99, my main focus was jazz, learning the tradition,” Diamond explains. “Yet at the same time my interest in Latin music in its various forms continued further.”
From 2002-2013, when he lived near the intersection of Graham Avenue (aka Avenue of Puerto Rico) and Broadway in Brooklyn, Diamond would soak up the sounds of Hector Lavoe and Willie Colón blasting out of cars, apartment windows and porches in the neighborhood. “I got a good amount of inspiration living in that neighborhood, but more importantly, it represents a period of important growth,” he says.
Today Diamond is a quintessential product of New York City’s gorgeous mosaic, and Avenida Graham is a reflection of all his varied influences that have come together organically in his music. “I devote a lot of time studying the great masters but I also try to nourish another need to listen to other kinds of genres. I try not to limit myself to one part of the spectrum. Music is a universal language and we live in a rapidly globalizing and pluralistic society – I believe that a lot of music coming out today is a reflection of that.”
Some of the pieces on Avenida Graham had their beginnings as far back as 2009. Others were written a few months before the May 2015 session at Sear Sound Recording Studio in Manhattan. All in all it’s some of his most accomplished writing to date. Diamond, who exhibits a warm, unaffected tone in his cleanly picked lines throughout this spirited recording, is joined by a stellar crew. Drummer Henry Cole (who plays with Miguel Zenon) and pianist Mike Eckroth (formerly of John Scofield’s band) are both returning from 2012’s Conduit, as are tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake (who appears on two searing tracks here) and percussionist Mauricio Herrera. Rounding out the lineup are saxophonist Stacy Dillard and bassist Peter Slavov.
The collection kicks off with the churning, odd-metered groover Synesthesia which is fueled by Cole’s polyrhythmic pulse and Herrera’s percolating percussion. Dillard, on soprano sax, engages in some tight unisons with Diamond on the head, and as the piece opens up each contributes free-flowing solos that uplift the proceedings. Cole is also turned loose over a long tag at the end, bringing this opener to an exhilarating conclusion.
Rastros (“Traces”) opens on a tender note with Diamond’s fingerpicked arpeggios against Blake’s melancholy tenor tones. As the piece develops, it reveals a subtle tango flavor and gradually builds in intensity with Blake playing passionately over the top while Cole underscores with dramatic fills. Diamond’s solo here is elegant and introspective. “That’s one of my favorite tunes on the record,” says Diamond. “The harmonic progression is based on an étude that I wrote for guitar. The melody is very simple but there’s a flow to it that I like, and the mood of the piece is very somber and meditative.” He explains this track’s title: “‘Traces’ is about posterity. It also signals the importance of endeavoring to create music that is transcendent and timeless, in the face of a rapidly changing world that is becoming increasingly chaotic and ephemeral.”
El Coronel is a buoyant piece that incorporates an infectious son montuno jam in the middle section. Blake and Diamond have some lively exchanges and Cole erupts on his kit at the tag. “It’s an homage to a character from Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude,” explains Diamond. “It was one of the more challenging pieces for me to write and record. But in essence, I think the song itself, and many of my compositions for that matter, is all about creating a singable melody that can be seamlessly interwoven into a framework that can be both rhythmically and harmonically complex.”
Diamond plays fingerstyle archtop on the solo intro to the tender A Hint of Jasmin for more acoustic effect. This moving piece is also a brilliant showcase for Dillard’s expressive tenor playing. Gentrix, a rhythmically deceptive piece in five, incorporates lots of tricky subdivisions as the tune progresses. The presence of Herrera’s conga here also gives it a kind of Afro-Caribbean feel. Laia, on the other hand, is full of complexity as it opens with a rubato intro before leaping through different tempo changes and meter changes over the course of 8:26. Dillard soars on soprano here while Diamond contributes another remarkably fluid solo, spurred on by Cole’s scintillating and interactive pulse.
Ultima Palabra is a contemplative, graceful number that incorporates an alluring Argentine milonga rhythm. Eckroth contributes a particularly moving piano solo on this thoughtful number. Cascade is a lively, affecting piece that shows Diamond’s fondness for melody as a composer and also showcases Dillard’s outstanding soprano sax work.
The collection closes with Diamond’s most ambitious work, Motion Suite, a kind of sequel to his “Inertia” (from Conduit). “It took roughly two years to complete,” he explains. “This one has more complexity than ‘Inertia’ in terms of tempo changes and changes in meter. I suppose that there’s a lot going on here, I’m just really happy that we could make it all come to life in the studio.”

Leandro Cabral Trio Releases Sophomore Album “Alfa” 11/21 Recorded live at the Alfa Theater, Sao Paulo, Brazil


Pianist and composer Leandro Cabral is proud to announce the release of “Alfa”, his sophomore album as a leader. On “Alfa”, Cabral presents a unique palette of sound that is both grand and introspective. The album will be released in Brazil on October 21 and internationally on November 21.

The Leandro Cabral Trio is comprised of three Brazilian musicians, each notable within their generation for their unique contributions to jazz and contemporary Brazilian music. Cabral, who jumpstarted his career with the incomparable Ed Motta, is joined by bassist Sidiel Vieira and drummer Vitor Cabral. On standout track “A Dança”, vocalist Vanessa Moreno shares her beautiful stylings alongside saxophonist Cássio Ferreira.

Recorded live at the Alfa Theater in Sao Paulo, Brazil in January 2016, “Alfa” presents the Leandro Cabral Trio in prime form as they present a distinctive intersection of Brazilian music and jazz improvisation. Seven of the ten songs are Cabrals; each features distinctive counterpoint structures and pulsating ancestral rhythmic claves. “Many of my compositions have their roots in unusual Brazilian rhythms such as the vassi and the ijexá,” says Cabral, “...both of them originate from the percussive universe of Bahia.”

“Alfa” also features rich arrangements of Brazilian classics such as “Rapaz de Bem” by Johnny Alf and two songs from the iconic songbook of Antonio Carlos Jobim: “Inútil Paisagem” and “Outra Vez”.

Notes of Leandro Cabral:
For over a decade, pianist and composer Leandro Cabral has been setting the Brazilian jazz scene on fire with his bold compositions and skillful playing. Born in Santo André – SP, Cabral grew up listening to gospel music at his church. Leandro started his studies on classic piano at age seven, and at fourteen, he enrolled at the prestigious Fundação das Artes de São Caetano do Sul. It was there he was first introduced to the worlds of bossa nova, jazz, and improvisation; especially after partaking in harmony classes with Nelson Ayres at the Festival Internacional de São Caetano do Sul.

During his teenage years, in parallel with his formal studies, he frequently played gospel music in a new-pentecostal church. It was there that he was given his first opportunities to record. At age sixteen, he began to flourish in São Paulo’s nightlife scene. At age seventeen, he started his bachelor degree on piano by the Faculdade de Artes Alcântara Machado – FAAM/FMU, and graduated in 2004. Some of his professors marked him deeply: Ricardo Rizek, Sidney Molina, Orlando Mancini, Marisa Lacorte and Abel Rocha.

At age twenty-two he was invited by singer and musician Ed Motta to be part of his band. With Motta, he recorded the album “Piquenique”, of the instrumental project “Aystelum/Dwitza” for SESC TV and thus went on tours of Argentina and Brazil with him.

In addition, Cabral has performed and/or recorded with Maria Rita, Seu Jorge, Filó Machado, Akua Naru, Honey Larochelle (Macy Gray), Rashid, Wilson Simoninha, Paula Lima, Roberta Sá, Giana Viscardi and Cynthia Utterbach, among others.

He often performs with other musicians: Ed Neumeister (USA), Adonis Rose (USA), Lupa Santiago, Sérgio Galvão, Edu Ribeiro, Vincent Gardner (USA), Hector Costita (ARG), David Richards (USA), Nailor Proveta, Jessé Sadoc, Daniel D'alcântara, Casey Scheurell (USA), Cuca Teixeira, François Lima, Letieres Leite, Bocato, Idriss Boudrioua (FRA), Vitor Alcântara, Jaques Morelenbaum, Vinícius Dorin, Walmir Gil, Luis De La Hoz (CUB), Paulinho Guitarra, Wilson Teixeira, Arismar do Espírito Santo, Thiago do Espírito Santo e Márcio Montarroyos.

In 2012 he joined the faculty of the famous Conservatório Souza Lima.

He participates of masterclasses with several masters, being them, among others: Marcus Miller, Joshua Redman, Jovino Santos (Hermeto Pascoal), César Camargo Mariano, and Letieres Leite (Orkestra Rumpilezz).

Other recent projects include “Leandro Cabral Grupo celebra Moacir Santos e Letieres Leite” which debuted in São Paulo in 2015 and was praised by Letieres himself, as well as the newest album “Ubuntu” from guitarist Lupa Santiago.

In February 2015, he recorded his first album titled “Sobre Tradição”, which went on to receive critical acclaim.

This recording was also presented in video and gave origin to the web-series “Arsis Piano Sessions apresenta Leandro Cabral Trio | Standards”, which gained a prominent following and continues gain popularity.

He collaborates with several projects: Ed Motta, Lourenço Rebetez, Daniel de Paula & Irmandade, Jorginho Neto Collective, Lupa Santiago Quartet, Deep Funk Session and Irmãos & Brothers – on the latter three projects, he is also composer and arranger. Frequently, he has been on tour with his group, trio and solo piano.
