All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Seattle-based Jovino Santos Neto is one of the new breed of Brazilian jazzmen. He builds on the forms created by earlier generations, mixing them with jazz even more than those who came before him, until it's almost a new hybrid that joins North and Latin American styles. There are the complex rhythms -- just listen to the opening of "Matraca," for instance -- but there's also plenty of room for improvisation from all the players in the band, with a strong emphasis on the sax work of Harvey Wainapel.

He builds on the forms created by earlier generations, mixing them with jazz even more than those who came before him, until it's almost a new hybrid that joins North and Latin American styles. There are the complex rhythms -- just listen to the opening of "Matraca," for instance -- but there's also plenty of room for improvisation from all the players in the band, with a strong emphasis on the sax work of Harvey Wainapel. Neto himself is a composer with a smart ear for melody, but also a deep grounding in Brazilian music forms, and as a player, he possesses a rare fluidity, not only on the piano, but also the melodica, which he uses on "Sea and Sky."

With his longstanding quintet, he's grown into an artist of real stature.
