Brazilian Nights

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Jack Jezzro was among the more versatile session players of the 1980s and 1990s; though the guitarist did his share of country-pop dates in Nashville, he had no problem playing pop-jazz. One of the NAC-oriented albums he recorded as a leader was Brazilian Nights, a decent but unremarkable collection of pop-jazz mood music.

As its title indicates, this release has strong Brazilian leanings -- instrumentals like "Latin Storm" which bears a slight resemblance to Kenny Dorham's "Blue Bossa", "Señor Samba," and "Café Calypso" underscore Jezzro's appreciation of bossa nova. But not everything on the CD is Brazilian-minded "Ladrón de Corazon," for example, has more of an Andean/Peruvian/Bolivian appeal, while "Fiesta Español" is flamenco-influenced. Not fantastic but generally pleasant, Brazilian Nights has more going for it than a lot of the NAC releases that came in the late 1990s.
