CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Sedajazz Records artist: Sergio Pereira - Finesse - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Finesse, from Sergio Pereira and it's really quite nice. Opening with White Lion, Sergio Pereira on guitar and vocal is joined by Reza Khan on rhythm guitar, Rodrigo Ursaia on flute, Helio Alves on piano, Mark Egan on bass, Mauricio Zottarelli on drums and Emelio Martins on percussion. A relatively smooth track a cool radio opener.  Morning Mist is an uptempo Brazillian Samba with melodic acoustic guitar and vocal by Pereira and marcus Teixeira on electric guitar, Paulo Paulelli on bass and Zottarelli on drums. Very nice. Ralph Moore on alto sax adds in on the intro on Quase 9 and really nice vocal by Pereira makes this a really strong tune. Helio Alves on piano lays in the first line of solo, followed by Moore, joined by Andre Vasconcellos on bass, and Emilio Martins on percussion. A nice breeze of cool air.  Desfilandoa Vitoria is very lively with a punctuated rhythm with the addition of Rodrigo Ursaia on sax and flute, Rubinho Ahtunes on trumpet, Jorinho Neto on trombone and with the addition of Milene Corso and Camilla Pereira on backing vocals. One of my favorites on the release. Wrapping the release is Dreamsville featuring Pereira on acoustic lead guitar over Paulelli (who also slides in a tasty solo) on bass and Zottarelli on the lightest of drum rhythm. This release is consistently smooth and rhythmic with tasty riffs, cool vocals and nice melodies.
