The music on Brazilian Love Song is as varied as life itself – ranging from tender to intense.  Joined on various tracks by Brazilian master musicians, drummer Paulo Braga and percussionist Marivaldo Dos Santos, with the multitalented David Finck on bass and Aaron Heick on alto saxophone, Davidson weaves a multi-hued tapestry of truly moving music.  Beginning with the quintet’s performance of the title tune – his first foray into the Brazilian sound, written in 1978, more than a decade after he was first attracted to the style following a hearing of the classic Getz/Gilberto album – we hear just how organically the pianist has absorbed the genre’s “syntax” into his own personal musical vocabulary.  On the trio track “Calor do Coraçao, featuring Finck’s virtuoso arco bass playing, the composer makes evident his ability to express deep feelings with seemingly effortless simplicity.  “Ritmo Das Flores,” “O Jogo” and “Samba da Sarah” each flows in its own special way with the intoxicating rhythms of Brazil, from Rio to Bahia.  Throughout the album’s other pieces Davidson demonstrates his love of the music of that land with enchanting expressions of melodies and rhythms that recall its beauty.

  “Music is music … music is for the world,” says Davidson in describing his own personal aesthetic and the philosophy of Soundbrush Records that reflects his vision.  “Great musicians and great sounds,” proclaims Pablo Aslan of the label’s productions and its future, where it will undoubtedly continue to explore new musical horizons.
