by Clarice Assad

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Described by the San Francisco Chronicle as a “serious triple threat,” Grammy award nominee Clarice Assad is praised internationally for her work as a pianist, arranger, vocalist and a composer. The daughter of Sergio Assad, one half of the celebrated duo, the Assad Brothers, who are arguably the greatest classical duo in the history of Brazilian music, and the cousin of the guitar master Badi Assad, Clarice’s talents are the product of a rich musical heritage.

A versatile artist of musical depth and sophistication, Clarice’s compositions have been performed and recorded by musicians both in the classical and the jazz realms, including Yo Yo Ma, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Louisville Symphony Orchestra, the Austin Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, and the New Century Chamber Orchestra, as well as many others.

Clarice’s interpretations have been described as “inimitable, unlike anyone else’s” (Jazz Improv), and she has been lauded as a “charismatic singer’ by The New York Times and as “a fine classical and jazz pianist, composer and jazz-infused pop stylist” by Jazz Times.

Home, her debut on Adventure Music, introduces the Clarice Assad Trio, which features Clarice on piano and vocals, and Keita Ogawa and Yousif Sheronick on percussion. Together they explore Brazilian music in an entirely new way, on both creative original compositions and daring arrangements of songs by such well loved composers as Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Dori Caymmi, incorporating elements of pop, contemporary classical music and middle-eastern beats and rhythms with a traditional Brazilian sensibility.
