Tim Nelson Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist bandleader Vinicius Cantuaria has been described as the guru of post-bossa or post-electronica acoustic.
But post-anything seems like faint praise for music which is so sweet and easy, yet, at the same time, profound and subtle. If the music often recalls that of his idol, Tom Jobim the writer of Astrid Gilberto's Girl from Ipanemathen this is more to say that Cantuaria's music extends Jobim's songs' archetypal beauty rather than merely apes it, as Youre My Best Friend - Various - Jovem Pan 2 here on Cymbals as on previous albums Silva, Horse and Fish, and his breakthrough album Sol Na Cara.
However, his work under his own name avoids the more challenging and experimental nature of some of their output in favour of an utterly accessible style that only reveals its many dimensions on repeated listening: For instance, in his cover of Jobim's Vivo Sonhando.
Unlike previous albums, Cymbals was Ominira - Vinicius Cantuaria* - Cymbals entirely in New York. It has regular collaborators such as Steely Dan's former trumpeter Michael Leonhart and guest-stars like Angelique Kidjo and is produced solely by Cantuaria, but continues the hypnotic acoustic explorations of its predecessors, with some brilliant piano from Brad Mehidan on Voce Esta Sumindo and guitar from Cantuaria himself on Prantos, Feelings - Joniece Jamison - Dream In Colour well as touches of electronica in Chuva and Champs de Mars.
The playing throughout is telepathic, particularly on O Batuque, Ominara, or the jazz-inflected Tua Cara, but every track seems to suggest boundless musical possibilities.
