Antonio Neves

Pegada Agora E Essa

Release date: May 14, 2021
From samba and bossa nova through to baile funk, with carioca expressions of jazz, rock and hip hop in between, the sound of Rio de Janeiro, while continually evolving, has always held an unnameable quality which reflects the magic and mystique of the city itself. Multi-instrumentalist and arranger Antonio Neves is the city's newest trailblazer: the enfant-terrible of Rio's music scene, leading a vital and diverse constellation of both emerging and well-known artists advancing the city's musical legacy. "It all started one sleepless night, after watching a Quincy Jones documentary". Inspired by the legendary music magnate, Neves began writing a list of artists residing in Rio de Janeiro "people that I admire, that I consider geniuses of their instruments, who share with me affinities, anxieties and projects." The list included some of Brazil's most revered living musicians who Neves has worked with in recent years: Hamilton de Holanda, Leo Gandelman and Dorival Caymmi. Neves also called on some of Brazil's most exciting emerging talents including Alice Cayymii and Ana Frango Eletrico. A Pegada Agora Essa (The Sway Now) is Neves' second album: a vibrant portrait of the current Brazilian music scene. From the regional to universal, popular to erudite, samba to rap, Latin rhythms to jazz, MPB and pop to good old rock'n'roll, Neves walks with fluency and mastery amongst all the musical genres that Brazil has to offer. "My offer to the musicians was complete freedom to express themselves through the songs I proposed classics like "Summertime", "Luz Negra" and "Noite de Temporal", and compositions of my own creating a space of authorship for the band and the guests. A space for inventions, purges, delusions, laughter
