After releasing a traditional all-swing album “Sabuy Dee” Mellow Motif has decided to return to the style that they are really loved for – Brazilian Jazz. “Ao Vivo!” will feature both light and deep, well-known and lesser-known, but all-beautiful-and-expressive Bossa Nova/Brazilian tunes as well as Jazz standards and a handful of popular contemporary songs done in a refreshing style that’s influenced by the spirit of Jazz and their love for Brazilian rhythms and its gorgeous harmonies.
It is of great honor that “Ao Vivo!” will feature original arrangements by legendary composer/arranger and the father of Bossa Nova,Roberto Menescal, who will join the project as a guest arranger and will be arranging Thai classics such as tunes by the renown Thai composer/writer, Prapas Cholsaranon. For the first time Thai jazz fans will get to hear their long-time loved songs in a true Brazilian vein, crafted by the real master.
Guest artists on the album include: Jesse Kramer (Drums - Detroit, USA), Dr. Denny Euprasert (Piano - Dean of the Rangsit University Conservatory of Music), and a few surprise guests!
