In the sweltering North-Eastern Brazil, in the coastal city of Recife, Amaro Freitas is trailblazing “the new sound of Brazilian jazz”. His three albums, released between 2016 and 2021, quickly helped raise Amaro’s visibility as the most promising and recognizable name among the country’s new generation of pianists. His approach to the keyboard is consummate, his technique swift and singularly percussive, but also imbued with exceptional natural flair. While indebted to the obvious influences from Monk to Corea, local traditions also play a crucial role – from the Afro-Brazilian maracatu to the carnival rhythms of frevo and baião. Not owning a piano, young Amaro negotiated a deal with a local restaurant to practise there before opening hours. At the age of twenty-two he formed a trio – the format in which he still plays today (when not performing solo).

A major factor behind Y'Y, his fourth release and first ‘solo’ album that came out this March, was a decisive shift – his first intervention into the piano innards several years ago. The sound of a prepared piano, charged with dynamics and swing! The album met with great critical acclaim and is not a one-man effort in its entirety. Its collaborators include outstanding musicians the likes of Shabaka Hutchings, Jeff Parker, Hamid Drake and Brandee Younger.
