On the new MCG Jazz CD, Vinho Do Porto (MCGJ 1033) featuring special guest Jay Ashby, Portinho Trio mixes some great songs from Brazil and the New York Jazz scene. Some favorites are “Homage To Tom” with its feeling of Antonio Carlos Jobim in the keyboards. “Satin Doll” and “Footprints” are novel interpretations of two jazz standards from different eras of jazz history. “Vai De Vez,” led by the trombone, is a light and airy groove for the quartet. “Canção Que Morre No Ar” could be called a ballad, but with Portinho’s drums it becomes a soft groove. On “Aquarela Do Brasil” Klaus Mueller’s piano intro is an eloquent set-up for Jay Ashby’s trombone on the melody.
