Meretrio

The Meretrio was brought together in São Paulo – Brasil, in 2004, as an initiative of Emiliano Sampaio (guitar and trombone), Gustavo Boni (acoustic and electric bass), and Luis André (drums and percussion), with the purpose of researching the diversity of popular music. In 2021, Meretrio releases its 7. album “Choros” playing only Brazilian music!

Meretrio played in important Festivals in Europe, Australia and Brazil such as Bayerisches Jazz Weekend, Perth Jazz Fest, Fête de la Musique, Jazz´n More, Mikulassky Jazz Festival, SESC Sao Paulo, Jazz Na Fábrica, and in the famous concert halls Porgy & Bess in Vienna and Sendesaal in Bremen. In 2017 Meretrio released the album Óbvio featuring the saxophonist Heinrich Von Kalnein (Jazz Big Band Graz) in two tracks, which got four stars from the Downbeat Magazine and entered in the list “Best Albums of the Year”. In 2019, Meretrio recorded a new project asking the question: would it be possible to mix trombone, guitar and electronics in a way that the music is also playable in live situations? This was Meretrio´s main motivation to compose several compositions exploring different colors than the traditional jazz trio Guitar, Bass and Drums. With the help of digital effects and loop machine, we can combine lines and harmonies from all instruments in real time, creating new textures and musical possibilities. Still in 2019, Meretrio released the album “Passagem” as a quartet with Heinrich von Kalnein (Tenor Sax and Flute), recorded at Bauer Studios and released by Natango Music

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
