Paulistano

2018

Paulistano

On his new album Paulistano, Floriano found his inspiration to develop a musical creation from the roots of his birth place, the city of São Paulo, Brazil. Specifically, the southern part of Sāo Paulo. 

The starting point of his journey seeks not only musical, but interpersonal horizons throughout the world which are stamped and present in every song of the album. It is a journey to his past.

Each memory, discovery and accomplishment adds extra color and details to his compositions and arrangements. 

Melodies and harmonies range from the more traditional Samba-Jazz style on the track"Paulistano", to a more modern style found on the track "Thailand".

The song "Do Cavaco pro Piano" showcases a combination between the piano and cavaquinho which to Floriano is simply perfect; this fusion of instruments is the one that has touched him the most since beginning his musical journey. 

Throughout his compositions and arrangements, Floriano includes a broad variety of instruments played by renowned musicians. 

On this album, Floriano highlights the musical signature that has followed him from the very beginning of his career; a mix between his Brazilian roots and jazz. 

It is within this current phase that his musical projects are inserted and where he continues to develop. 

He considers this particular combination of rhythms contagious and hopes to bring about emotions of happiness, energy and love to all people listening to them.

Floriano is a musician with a generous heart and tremendous talent. 

With his latest album, Floriano expresses the "Paulistano"* within himself. 

Attitude

2014

Attitude” reflects Floriano Inacio Jr’s journey through memory, family and musical roots.

The magical layers present in this recording are an invitation for us to travel through our memories and our roots! This is represented well in “Emoção à Flor da Pele”.

Floriano Inacio Jr explores his virtuosity, techniques, his musicality and taste on various instruments.

Whether performing as a soloist or with his ensemble, Floriano offers a clear musical expression.  For him it’s not enough to have complete mastery of his own instrument, he requires an understanding of all the instruments involved and his full relationship with them.  This is Jazz!  Floriano applies both accademic and artistic qualities in his music.  Brazil style Jazz!

Floriano Inacio Jr’s music breaks down barriers, challenges limits, cultural and geographic frontiers. He pushes down walls, and constructs bridges of love with his work.

To listen to his music is to open old memories and let them flower.

Floriano Inacio Jr’s recording “Attitude” is a picture of our incessant search for happiness as the balance of the Present, and the reflection’s of the Past marching to the Future; is the inexorable journey of all people.  Altogether, what distinguishes each of us is the „Attitude“ with which we live, journeying through sound, and feeling through the eyes of the heart!
*Translated literally from Portuguese, this means “emotion that flowers from the skin”. It refers to that feeling when a piece of music gives you goosebumps, when sensation overcomes reason and emotion flowers like sweat from the skin.

Deu Choro

2012

«Choro», traditionally called «chorinho» (little cry), is one of Brazil’s most popular music genres. Unlike its name, the rhythm is cheerful and rather fast. Musicians often meet for jam sessions called «rodas de choro», which are characterised by virtuosity and improvisation. Once the «choro» is in full swing people show their enjoyment by cheering «Deu Choro». It therefore lends itself nicely to the title of this album. With original arrangements and mostly their own compositions, the band presents their first CD bringing you the creativity, colour, charm and happiness of Brazil. Enjoy!

Floriano Inacio Jr

2011

This first solo album confirms Floriano Inácio Junior’s musical talent, which was already promisingly brought to light in previous group projects such as the Kaiapo trio. The pianist, who is from Brazil, is able to develop compositions that create a special fusion between Brazilian Jazz and different traditional Brazilian rhythms.

An energizing freshness comes shining through his music, inspired by diverse influences such as the samba and other traditional rhythms. A piano line sometimes recalling the sound of cavaquinho (a small Brazilian Guitar). And more importantly we hear an amazing, natural and almost intuitive sense of melody.

Floriano Inácio Junior and his truly gifted musicians unveil a brilliant and exciting bright form of jazz in this spectacular album.

Trio Kaiapó

2008

Zestful, vibrant and deliciously melodic, the music of the Kaiapo Trio blends to brilliant contemporary jazz an irresistible Brazilian flavour.
Named after an indigenous tribe from the Brazilian state of Pará, the trio formed by Floriano Inácio Júnior (piano), Eduardo Costa (drums) and Eduardo ’Dudu’ Penz (bass) plays original compositions along with classics of Brazilian music and jazz standards interpreted in Brazilian rhythms.

In this first album together, the 2003-founded trio takes us to a breezy and colourful musical journey to the confluences of thrilling jazz, melancholic bossa and buoyant samba vibes. A magic further enhanced by the presence of remarkable guest musicians. With a constant care for smart arrangements and courageous interpretations, it is not only an amazing interplay but certainly a promising talent that this album reveals, to our great pleasure!
