postagem em resposta à pergunta de érico cordeiro (jazz+bossa+baratos outros) linkado ao lado, sobre o pianista brasileiro, aloísio aguiar, que gravou com ron carter, no álbum patrão' 80 (post abaixo).
após pesquisa na internet (cds autorais e alguns vídeos no youtube), encontrei-o no site de relacionamento, facebook (que desconhecia)...imediamente, criei um perfil e entrei em contacto.
hoje pela manhã, ao abrir meus e-mails, lá estava uma mensagem atenciosa do pianista carioca, residente em NYC, há 35 anos.
segue o profile...
Pianist and composer Aloisio Aguiar from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil has been performing for more than 40 years. He is a natural musician and carries pure music in his soul. Whatever he's playing, he brings life into any environment. He began studying classical piano and soon after dedicated himself to Chorinho, a form of popular Brazilian music of that time. During his teenage years, he took part in the jam sessions in Ipanema where the Bossa Nova was created and began his career playing Brazilian jazz. By 1970, he was established among the Brazilian community of musicians by playing with some of Brazil's most renowned such as Milton Nascimento, Gal Costa and Leni Andrade. Later in 1973, he became the keyboardist and arranged for Gilberto Gil's band, participating in national tours and recording several albums. In 1975, Aloisio traveled to the United States. In Los Angeles, he recorded with Cal Tjader, Airto, Flora Purim and Jon Lucien. During this period, he was the musical director and keyboardists for the groups Caldera and Redbone. Since 1977, he has been living in New York City and has performed in concerts with Herbie Mann, Olatunji, Ron Carter and Paquito D'Rivera and others. As an arranger and producer he has completed three CDs for Adela Dalto on Venus and Milestone Records which includes some of his original compositions.
"from all the Brazilian piano players that I know, and I know many, he is the greatest one. Many generations will come, as they have gone by, before another Brazilian piano player can be compared to Aloisio. He plays with his heart!"
