Silveira, Ricardo, Outro Rio

Outro Rio (another river) is Ricardo Silveira’s 3rd release for Adventure Music and the follow-up to his last solo outing, Noite Clara, which was nominated for a Latin Grammy as Best instrumental recording of 2004. Outro Rio is clearly Silveira’s most accomplished and mature recording to date and highlights not only his amazing skill as a guitarist, but also his talent as an arranger, producer and prolific composer. This new release marks his 7th solo recording as band leader. Over the past fifteen years, Ricardo Silveira has earned a reputation as one of Brazil’s most admired and respected international musicians. He began serious guitar study at age sixteen and is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he studied alongside jazz greats Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell. “Ricardo Silveira possesses the compositional eloquence of Metheny, the bracing attack of Benson, the confident, brash dexterity of Hendrix and Clapton, the potent, commanding presence of Santana. Yet his sound is definitely original.” Jazz Times
