Album Notes
Panorama do Brasil draws on the diverse musical landscape of Brazil: music with influences from the arid interior, the Amazonian basin, and the streets of Rio and Salvador. Panorama do Brasil is the latest project from drummer/composer Alastair Kerr, a long-time student of Brazilian music, recognised as one of Australia's best exponents of Brazilian percussion. Kerr is known for his work with groups such as The Doug de Vries Trio, The New Sheiks, Sexteto Zona Sul, and Trio Agogo, and is leading this new group focusing on Brazilian influenced jazz. With Asha Henfry (flute), Al Parsons (trombone), Dan Gassin (piano), and Jorge Albuquerque (bass).

The Archer and the Dancer

The Berimbau (the Archer) is part of the traditional musical accompaniment in the Brazilian martial art, capoeira (the Dancer). The interplay between the two was central to the development of capoeira as art in itself. It is permeated by a sense of mischievousness and improvisation.

This new suite was composed by Alastair Kerr for Panorama do Brasil following his most recent travels in Brazil. It brings the aesthetic of Brazilian rhythms - exciting, multi-layered and diverse - to contemporary Australian jazz. The suite is both Brazilian and Australian, building on the countries' shared backdrop of transculturation, becoming something that is new art in itself - mischievous and improvised, rhythmic and beautiful.
