Maurício de Souza TRIO or QUARTET performs a variety of jazz standards from Miles to Metheny. The group concentrates on performing the most refined tunes from each of the modern jazz eras. The challenging arrangements include tunes in 3/4, 5/4, and 7/4 time as well as modal tunes. Esteemed performers Andrew Beals (alto sax) and Noah Haidu (piano) have contributed highly to the advanced melodic material and intense drive of the group. De Souza's other group, BOSSA BRASIL, performs the most sophisticated Brazilian music. The repertoire includes compositions from Brazil’s most outstanding artists such as Tom Jobim, Egberto Gismonti, Roberto Menescal, Milton Nascimento, Edu Lobo, Victor Assis Brasil, Hermeto Pascoal, Baden Powell, and Pixinguinha. Some of the even more exotic rhythms explored by the trio include the “Baião” and the "Chorinho." Esteemed Brazilian performers Hélio Alves (piano), Nilson Matta (bass), Leonardo Cioglia (bass), Aloisio Aguiar (piano), and extremely tasteful pianist Carl Viggiani have contributed highly to the authentic and original sound of the group.
