Album Description

All compositions by: Wayne Shorter except Afosamba by Antonio Adolfo Produced by: Antonio Adolfo For the esteemed Brazilian composer/arranger/pianist Antonio Adolfo, his life’s work has been to bring to the world the diverse richness of the Brazilian musical traditions – with a particular focus upon its parallel developments with the profound legacy of jazz. But of equal importance is making great music, to which his many highly acclaimed and Latin Grammy-nominated albums clearly testify. For his latest delightful excursion, the incomparable Wayne Shorter provides the essence of his focus with HYBRIDO, subtitled From Rio to Wayne Shorter. “Mr. Wayne Shorter is one of my musical idols, both as instrumentalist and composer. His compositions have very rich harmonies and melodies, and in my opinion, they can fit very well with the Brazilian style.” This wonderful album clearly supports that opinion. In his masterful hands, eight iconic Wayne Shorter compositions – along with one outstanding and fully compatible Adolfo original – are brilliantly re-imagined, while remaining utterly respectful and confluent with the composers intent. Shorter’s richly lyrical and compelling compositions are ripe for interpretation and sophisticated in both harmony and rhythm to allow for adventurous exploration while holding to their essential musicality. They also provide the ideal springboard for Antonio’s multi- cultural approach to creativity, further clarifying the album’s title. “I love this hybridism of cultural and music styles, since new ideas and possibilities come from it.” Given Wayne Shorter’s various forays into the world of Brazilian music, the question has arisen… what if Wayne Shorter had been born in Brazil? Antonio Adolfo’s extraordinary HYBRIDO provides a very appropriate answer.
