Philippe Baden Powell (son of Brazilian musical legend, Baden Powell de Aquino) is reinventing Brazilian jazz in the lineage of his father’s generation. Balancing the classical with the spiritual, the cinematic with the introspective, and sensitivity with a distinctly Brazilian groove, Notes Over Poetry, a new album for Far Out Recordings, calls upon the inspiration of the many musical and artistic greats Baden Powell has been surrounded by throughout his life.

Classically Brazilian in its roots, but global in its outlook, Notes Over Poetry sits as comfortably next to Tom Jobim’s ‘Wave’ as it does to Robert Glasper’s ‘Black Radio’. Vamos Donatear - a track dedicated to the great Joao Donato - is hot, fluid samba-jazz in the vein of the Brazilian legend himself, while the equally groovy Chica hosts punchy horn arrangements reminiscent of masterpieces by Arthur Verocai and Eumir Deodato. With lyrics in English, title track and the satin-soft ‘State Of Music’ lean toward the cooler climate of North American Hip/Hop and RnB, while ‘For You To Know’ is a spellbinding syrup of deep-jazz, flaunting Philippe’s innate talent for writing powerfully emotive melody and harmony.
