Audiograph Album Release, Fidel Cuellar And Luiz Ebert's Leader Debut


Sign in to view read count
New York, NY - Audiograph, the debut album of New York based South American musicians Luiz Ebert and Fidel Cuellar is a collection of musical portraits. Featuring a world-class jazz quintet, Audiograph’s sound is open and lyrical, playing with textures, layers, form and improvisation. “With simple and evocative sonic images” (Jorge Arevalo Mateus, Grammy award winning producer and ethnomusicologist).

Audiograph was written to recreate the experience of browsing through a photo album. It is a call to see through our ears. Each song tells a story: the busy sounds of Harlem on a hot summer night, the quite contemplation of the Hudson River in winter, the fantasy and tension of a twirling ballerina, the chaotic roar of highway traffic. “There is a lovely lyricism to the writing” (concert pianist and CUNY faculty Alison Deane).

Colombian pianist Fidel Cuellar and Brazilian drummer Luiz Ebert have both built fruitful careers as sidemen in the local New York Brazilian, Afro-cuban, and modern jazz scenes, playing with the likes of Bobby Sanabria, John Benitez, and Vince Cherico. They are supported in this album by some of New York’s most promising up-and-coming musicians: Livio Almeida on saxophones, Will Caviness on trumpet, and Ian Stapp on bass. The album was recorded at Brooklyn’s Bunker Studio (Jason Lindner, John Medeski), mixed by Jeremy Loucas (Terri Lyne Carrington, Esperanza Spalding), and mastered by Katherine Miller (Cyrus Chestnut, Eric Reed).

The album release party took place at ShapeShifter Lab in Brooklyn on October 14th, 2013.

Audiograph is now available for online purchase through CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, and all major online retailers. Limited edition CD/Booklets are available, featuring the work of 6 photographers from around the world who shared what they saw while listening to Fidel and Luiz's music.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
