ZOHO MUSIC has released vibraphonist/ harmonica player Hendrik Meurkens' new CD NEW YORK SAMBA JAZZ QUINTET. Recorded live at Cecil's Jazz Club, the album features Hendrik's Samba Jazz Quartet with special guest Jed Levy on tenor and flute. Meurkens penned four of the nine tracks for the Quintet which also includes pianist Helio Alves, bassist Gustavo Amarante and drummer Adriano Santos.
... Lucky for his listeners, Meurkens remains an inspired interpreter of Sambas and Chorinhos, and a bandleader with a knack for selecting a consistently appealing blend of instrumental voices - warm, tonally rich and perfectly attuned to each other...He also reprises two upbeat original pieces...sturdy enough to suggest that future generations of Brazilian jazz devotees may look to Meurkens' tunes as source and inspiration"--Philip Booth
