Lupa Santiago 4teto: Ubuntu

Brazilian guitarist/composer Lupa Santiago brings the spotlight to trombonist Ed Neumeister on his latest album of rich and flowing originals. The “4tet” of Santiago with Leandro Cabral/p, Alex Buck/dr and Bruno Migotto are peppy as they snap through a playful “Two For Eleven” and get bluesy on “Trails.” Cabral’s piano chimes with Santiago’s boppy guitar on “Enfim SUS” and the team gets funky with some deft string work by the leader on “Eco Sysem.” Guest ‘bone Neumeister sighs with Cabral’s ripples on “Probably Maybe” and is grooves on the easy glide during “Dauphine.” Sublime and alluring in its simple charms.
