by Jochen Eisentraut and Ubiraci Santos
Ritmeloxá was recorded in Brazil in September 2014 with Ubiraci Santos, master percussionist, and Jochen on soprano saxophone. Bira’s Afro-Brazilian rhythmic lines created possibilities of modal extrapolation and freedom of the melody. Influenced by Arabic and Indian music, and the modal approaches of Ralph Vaughan Williams and Miles Davis.

On these tracks Jochen Eisentraut creates dreamy moods and pulsating grooves with some surprises along the way. He paints with sound, working the line-up of piano, double bass and drums into a cohesive unit which takes the cool jazz vibe up to the present. Jochen is joined by Owen Evans, who has toured with Gryff Rhys; and Ged Lynch, drummer for Peter Gabriel and Goldfrapp.
