Brazilian guitarist and composer Flavio Silva is proud to announce the Friday, June 1st release of his sophomore album Break Free. Featuring a talented line-up including saxophonist Seamus Blake, bassist Alex "Apolo" Ayala, drummer Curtis Nowosad, pianist James Francies and vocalist Michael Mayo, Break Free is a call for love, hope and justice through music. While jazz remains to be at the core of this eight track compilation, Break Free is an exploration between cultures, and so incorporates the American art form with both African and Afro Brazilian sounds. The multi-brand endorsee presents this dynamic and versatile music with particular dexterity and flair, while maintaining the attention and appreciation of all music lovers. Silva and his band will be celebrating the release of Break Free at Cornelia Street Cafe in New York City on July 15th. Break Free is a journey through cultures, genres and life experiences. The album consists of seven original compositions by Silva and one cover, “Samba e Amor”, by the great Brazilian vocalist and composer, Chico Buarque. While the compositions are adventurous, Silva delivers each track in a distinct way to ensure that the music can be enjoyed by music lovers from all corners of the world. Silva explains “I want my mom (who isn’t a musician) to listen to the record and enjoy it, tap her foot and feel the vibe”. On Break Free, Silva’s vision is truly realized with the help of this accomplished ensemble. Delivering this album with a beautifully fresh and positive outlook for music and the world as a whole, the skilled guitarist takes his listeners on a musical trip with each composition. Recorded at Big Orange Sheep Studios, Brooklyn, Break Free showcases Silva’s talents as not only a guitarist but as a dynamic composer too. Opening track “Africa” as the title aptly suggests, is influenced by African rhythms and the Benin-born guitarist and composer Lionel Loueke. Other stand out tracks from the album include “Royal Song” an eclectic amalgamation of modern jazz and Afro-Brazilian genres like Baião and Afoxé, and “Brooklyn Bound” which, reflective of New York City, is a fast paced and boundless tune. With an ECM type of vibe to its groove, while still maintaining a strong Brazilian influence, “In Search of Peace” was written in a moment of turbulence for the bandleader. This composition provided Silva with an ideal outlet to find tranquility and peace during this time. While “Samba e Amor” pays tribute to one of the most accomplished Brazilian singers and composers, Chico Buarque, the title and closing track off the album exhibits what Silva believes the world needs today. Reflective of Break Free as a whole, this song exudes hope, while exhibiting strong melodic and harmonic content. Flavio Silva presents this new and exciting album as a musical statement, with the hope that its message and deliverance evokes a mutual feeling of love and understanding throughout the universe. "Flavio Silva has put together a wonderful project that is a beautiful music statement. The compositions are adventurous, but very assemble for all music lovers. He has managed blend his Brazilian culture, and his love for other styles with a great deal of taste. His vision is realized with this wonderful ensemble of accomplished musicians. His use of space, development, and accompanying the ensemble is wonderful. He has a beautiful sound on the guitar, and takes us on a musical trip with each composition. Flavio Silva is fine young artist that will continue to make the world better with his music. I’m very proud of my former student, and wish him much success.” - Antonio Hart MORE ABOUT FLAVIO SILVA Flavio Silva is one of the many Brazilian composers and instrumentalists that has been breaking through a variety of music scenes, such as that of Brazil, The Netherlands and most recently, New York.
