ShapeShifter Plus Presents: Rob Mazurek Black Cube SP (São Paulo Underground with rabeca master Thomas Rohrer)
Rob Mazurek's newest ensemble, Black Cube SP, features Mazurek's long standing São Paulo Underground trio with the addition of rabeca (Brazilian viola) master Thomas Rohrer. Rohrer earned his stripes on the keening rabeca through intense studies with the instrument's leading practitioners in Brazil's northeast. This performance is a record release celebration for the ensemble's debut record, Return the Tides (Cuneiform), a startlingly cathartic and magisterial post-Tropicália modern psychedelic spiritual composed and recorded in the weeks after the unexpected passing of Mazurek's mother.

You can read more information and hear sound samples from Return the Tides at: http://www.cuneiformrecords.com/bandshtml/robmazurekoctet.html#tides.  
4 1/2 Stars" - Bill Meyer, DownBeat

"Mazurek's cornet playing, always affecting and timbrally luminous, achieves the paradox of being simultaneously corporeal and ethereal." - Barry Witherden, The Wire

"Mazurek's most personal and poignant offering to date; cathartic and compelling, it combines avant-garde jazz expressionism, bold electronic experimentation and hypnotic Tropicália rhythms with a profound spirituality." - Troy Collins, All About Jazz

"Nothing less than an aural spirit quest." - David Whiteis, Jazz Times

Underwriting Support for Rob Mazurek's Black Cube SP and Sao Paulo Underground is generously provided by the Robert D. Bielecki Foundation.
