Brandi Disterheft With George Coleman Orchestra Surfboard
Release Date: October 30, 2020
Label: Justin Time
Featuring the legendary saxophonist George Coleman, Surfboard is a Brazilian jazz album showcasing Brandi's inventive writing, power-socket bass playing, and sweet ethereal vocals. With Portinho on drums who is now in his eighties having performed with Tania Maria, Airto Moreira, Herbie Mann, Charlie Rouse, Nancy Wilson, Harry Belafonte, Paquito De Rivera to name a few, and the pearly genius of pianist Klaus Mueller, this trio shines with slick vignette arrangements paying homage to composers from Carlos Jobim to bassist Sam Jones.
