New Music. New Jazz. Discovered by John Zorn.
Gatos do Sul features premieres of compositions by Brian Marsella inspired by classical, jazz, and folkloric Brazilian music. Influenced by composers from Ernesto Nazareth, Heitor Villa-Lobos and Pixinguinha to Baden Powell and Egberto Gismonti, Marsella combines samba, bossa-nova, choro and more and turns it all on its ear.
