Rio 65 Trio makes Carnagie Hall Debut on Nov. 28

By Matt Micucci


This year, the Rio 65 Trio celebrates its fiftieth anniversary, having formed in Rio de Janeiro in 1965, as the name of their band suggests.

The original trio, composed of Dom Salvador on piano, Sergio Barrozo on bass and Édison Machado on drums, who unfortunately passed away in 1990, chose the name Rio 65 Trio to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the city of Rio de Janeiro.

In parallel with Bossa Nova, which introduced influences of the West Coast Jazz of Chet Baker, George Shearing, Stan Kenton and others into samba, a new genre was also being developed in Rio de Janeiro: Samba Jazz. The Rio 65 Trio was at the forefront of this particular genre, and released two historical albums, rio65trio (Philips, 1965) and A Hora e Vez da M.P.M. (Philips, 1966), which stand as testimony to their greatness and influence.

In this 50th year of their history, the Rio 65 Trio will also be making their Carnagie Hall debut. Their live performance will be taking place on Nov 28 at 7:30pm.

Dom Salvador and Sergio Barrozo will be joined by Duduka Da Fonseca, who replaced original drummer Edison Machado.

The November 28 performance will be followed by CD signing, and the concert will be dedicated to the memory of Édison Machado.
