Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings


When: Sun., Nov. 24, 8 p.m. 2013

Brazil has given us numerous music genres: samba, bossa nova, choro, the list goes on. Over the past century, its musical impact on the U.S. rivals that of any European country. On that note, it's surprising there aren't more bands like Matuto; and yet, they stand alone. Led by Clay Ross and Rob Curto, the band combines traditional Brazilian music, jazz, American Southern folk and a host of other influences, to create a unique blended sound. Not quite one genre specific, Matuto charts new and unfamiliar ground with a band of incredibly skilled musicians. Their latest release, The Devil and the Diamond, intricately arranges their instruments with a precision normally left for later-era Coltrane records. The mix of accordion, violin and Brazilian percussion alongside guitar, bass and drums, enables an excellent integration of two different worlds. Influenced by so many genres, the band should deliver a lively show tonight. (Stoops)
