Soundbrush Records releases “Live at Caffè Vivaldi, Vol. 3,” recordings of Roger Davidson’s Brazilian jazz piano solo performances.
The “Live at Caffè Vivaldi” series captures Soundbrush Records’ long standing live performances at the venerable Caffè Vivaldi in New York City. The first volume highlighted Davidson’s versatile and original Tango and Jazz compositions performed in duet. Volume 2 focused exclusively on Brazilian Jazz, with a dozen of his compositions and the immortal Antônio Carlos Jobim’s classic, “Garota de Ipanema” (The Girl from Ipanema).
Roger Davidson continues to pay homage to his life-long love for Brazilian music in “Live at Caffè Vivaldi, Vol. 3”. The CD features 16 tracks opening with “Alegria Brasileira”, a vigorous samba. It also includes the romantic “Amazing You”, “Amor Brasileiro”, “Bossa Para Vôce” and “Bossa Para Celia" and more. With the exception of two standards, Cole Porter’s “I Love You” and “Autumn Leaves” by Joseph Kosma, all compositions were written by Davidson. In Hot House Jazz’s review of “Live at Caffè Vivaldi, Vol. 3”, George Kanzler describes Davidson as a jazz musician with “vigorous embrace of rhythms and a penchant for creating catchy, memorable melodies.”
George Harris, Jazz Weekly extols Roger Davidson as “one of the most lyrical and romantic pianist around.” “Live at Caffè Vivaldi, Vol. 3” embodies Davidson’s connection to Brazil’s spirit through music —always full of heart. “Live at Caffè Vivaldi, Vol. 3” is available from: Amazon/CDBaby/iTunes.
