Biography

The Trio Corrente is an all star cast from the highest echelons of the São Paulo scene that includes Edu Ribeiro, the sensational drummer for Yamandu Costa, while pianist Fabio Torres and bassist Paulo Paulelli are currently working with Joyce and Rosa Passos.
Their eponymous debut Corrente (Maritaca) boldly recasts the high watermarks of composers that reflect the breadth of Brazilian music, from Jobim to Pixinguina, from the perspective of a typically discursive contemporary piano trio. Fender Rhodes lends a funky edge to proceedings and the playing for all three is extremely agile, the arrangements often breathtaking, as they move across rich rhythmic terrain of bossa, samba and choro, always with that Brazilian gift for equal parts lightness of touch and heavy grooving that stimulates the musical pleasure centres.
