Album: Salvador Trio, Tristeza/Salvador Trio (Mr Bongo
Sunday 14 October 2012
The best tracks on these two mid-1960s albums by the trio of Brazilian pianist Dom Salvador have a rhythmic density that could still get chin-strokers dancing.
Drummer Edison Machado is an absolute marvel, keeping up a sustained attack that anticipates the hip-hopping, polyrhythmic style of Brian Blade or Jeff "Tain" Watts, while Salvador himself is a twinkler par excellence. Imagine a hard bossa version of the Dudley Moore Trio and you're halfway there.
