Ricardo Silveira
Outro Rio (Another River)
Adventure Music

By Robert Kaye

Published January 28, 2008

Following his Latin Grammy nominated sophomore album, topflight guitarist Ricardo Silveira has once again forged another sparkling jazz gem. Aided by a host of talented Brazilian musicians, Silveira stretches his wings as an arranger, producer and composer on his seventh solo sojourn but it’s his prowess on the acoustic nylon-string guitar that continues to impress, particularly on “Outro Rio,” where his playing comes even more to the fore. Backed throughout by all-acoustic instrumentation (double bass, drums, and percussion) with occasional guests on clarinet, piano, cello or vocals, Silveira also penned 10 of the album’s dozen songs, coauthoring two of them (“O Monstro E A Flor” and “Dia Bom”) with Claudio Roditi and Ivan Lins, respectively. With its ostensible influences of bossa nova, samba and carnival, Outro Rio is richly authentic, never sounding contrived or corrupted by smooth jazz commercialism. It’s an impressive album that is certainly not to be missed.
