David Victorino new release “Circadian Rhythm” CD Baby
“While Brazilian jazz and bossa novas were largely introduced in the late 1950’s by singer-guitarist Joao gilberto, they became closely associated with the saxophone due to Stan Getz’s very popular bossa nova records of the 1960’s, particularly Jazz Samba with Getz/Gilberto.
Dave Victorino’s new CD “Circadian Rhythms” features his saxophone in the lead performing Brazilian jazz. Dave has been a fixture in the Southern California music scene for over 25 years playing a wide variety of music including creative melodic jazz. On Circadian Rhythm his tenor and occasional flute are featured on material that ranges from Jobim (Favela and My Little Boat) to Stanley Turrentine (Shirley). Standards (Tangerine and The night has a Thousand Eyes) to the Swan Lake Jazz Waltz. He is joined by a quintet/sextex that includes keyboardist Steve Correll and occasionally guitarist Justin Smith. Victorino plays beautifully throughout his program, coming up with a fresh variations (and two fine originals) that will delight those who love Brazilian jazz.
