DVD of the Month - "Zimbo Trio"

DVD of the Month
Zimbo Trio: "Ao Vivo - 45 Anos" (Arte Viva)

***** (musical performance)
****1/2 (sonic quality, because Rubens Barsotti's drums are too low in the mix)

It's already available in the U.S. via Dusty Groove:
That's what they say:
"Zimbo Trio Sinfonico – 45 Anos" (DVD)
A great side of the Zimbo Trio – celebrated beautifully in a recent live setting! The trio's probably best known for their core three-piece grooves of the bossa generation – but over the years, they also cut some great work with larger arrangements too – adding in some strings to really help their sound soar – in ways that are often surprisingly groovy, too! The set mixes up both sides of Zimbo's work in this mode – some of their "with strings" straight bossa work of the late 60s and "classical meets jazz" styles of the early 70s – played here by the core trio with Amilton Godoy on piano, and strings by Grupo Sinfonico Arte Viva. Patty Ascher and Diogo Pocas both make guest appearances on the set – and titles include "Saudade", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Garota De Ipanema", "Aviao", "Suite Cancao Do Amor Demais", and "Agua De Beber".
