Rio 65 Trio: 50 years of history

Celebrating 50 years of the historical album rio65trio with pianist Dom Salvador, bassist Sergio Barrozo and drummer Duduka Da Fonseca. The original trio, composed of Dom Salvador, Sergio Barrozo and Édison Machado, who unfortunately passed away in 1990, chose the name Rio 65 Trio to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the city of Rio de Janeiro. In parallel with Bossa Nova, which introduced influences of the West Coast Jazz of Chet Baker, George Shearing, Stan Kenton and others into samba, a new genre was also being developed in Rio de Janeiro: Samba Jazz. In this genre, which draws influences from bebop, hard bop and samba, fits the album rio65trio. The trio also released a second album in 1966 called A Hora e Vez da M.P.M., performed with Marcos Valle and Leny Andrade at Beco Das Garrafas (Rio’s 52nd Street), featured in Elis Regina's first album Samba - Eu Canto Assim and appeared in Carlos Hugo Christensen's film Crônica da Cidade Amada. 
Dom Salvador is an award-winning Brazilian jazz pianist, composer, and arranger. His previous album, The Art of Samba Jazz, won the 2012 BRAZILIAN MUSIC AWARD for Best Instrumental Album. Eubie Blake heard his music and wrote him in a letter in 1977: “I like your style of playing.” Salvador was born in Rio Claro, in the state of São Paulo. In 1961, Dom Salvador was invited by the drummer Dom Um Romão to join the group Copa Trio and performed in the famous jazz scene of Beco Das Garrafas (Rio's 52nd Street). He also accompanied other young artists such as Quarteto em Cy, Jorge Ben, and Elis Regina, and recorded the latter's first album, Samba - Eu Canto Assim. He would later go on to participate in recordings with Elza Soares, Sylvia Telles, Edu Lobo, Roberto Carlos, and the last album of the legendary composer and saxophonist Pixinguinha. From 1966 to 1973, Dom Salvador was the official pianist for the Brazilian label Odeon, and participated in hundreds of recordings with leading Brazilian artists of the time. In 1973, Dom Salvador moved to the US, and since then, he has recorded with Charlie Rouse, Paul Horn, Ron Carter and Egberto Gismonti. Dom Salvador also participated in Harry Belafonte's European tour as an artistic director, performing for Queen Elizabeth II's 25th Jubilee. For the past 38 years, he has been the in house pianist for the renowned The River Café.
