"Meu Samba no Prato - Tributo a Edison Machado" with Marcos Paiva MP6

Cited by music critics as one of the top musicians of the new crop of Brazilian music, contrabassist Marcos Paiva has recorded a homage to drummer Edison Machado - creator of "samba no prato" and one of the greatest references of samba-jazz.

The show, focused on new compositions written by Paiva for the tribute, is marked by vigorous improvisations and bold arrangements - a direct fruit of the energy that Edison Machado wielded with his drumsticks. The show evokes the famous Beco das Garrafas club in Rio de Janeiro, and the bars of Roosevelt Square in Sao Paulo in the 50s and 60s, where Brazilian instrumental music found its jazz expression. In this scenario, the vibrant Marcos Paiva Sextet - MP6 - make their way to somewhere new and contemporary.


“The healthy and exciting creative tension on the Edison Machado album of 1964, Edison É Samba Novo, is thriving in this revival tribute by Marcos Paiva, a type of dissection of the earlier album, or a springboard”.

Tárik de Souza for Carta Capital magazine - March 7 2012

“Marcos Paiva, a gripping contrabassist with a busy CV, together with his MP6, celebrate one of the biggest names to emerge from the Becos da Garrafas club in the early 1950s.
This is a special moment for one of the top new bass-players, a tribute album that is original and worthy of applause”.

"He updates his ideas and heads off to somewhere new and contemporary."
"I've already said that Meu Samba no Prato is the best album of samba-jazz recorded in Brazil in years."
