CD Hybrido – From Rio to Wayne Shorter, pre-review by Chris Spector – Midwest Records

AAM 0711

ANTONIO ADOLFO/Hybrido: Seems like a can’t miss situation. Takes Adolfo’s national treasure piano playing and pair it with a bunch of Wayne Shorter’s interesting moments from the 60s. You know what goes wrong here? Nothing. In addition to Shorter’s vast other good traits, he had an affinity for Brazilian jazz and all the elements come together here, all of them right in the moment as well. Real jazz for real jazz ears, Adolfo hits it out of the park once again keeping his masterful record of recordings in tact. Well done throughout.
