For this album, Nilson called Harry Allen, Anne Drummond, Klaus Mueller, Ze Mauricio and Mauricio Zotterelli into the studio. The album, produced by Nilson and Luisa Matta is dedicated to his native country of Brazil. It literally takes the listener on a “Brazilian Voyage” through the many regions of that country. Nilson Matta has long been considered one of the greatest bass players in the world and since his arrival in New York in 1985 he has become the first call of many of the top US musicians. Nilson studied bass at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) with Sandrino Santoro, Brazil’s premier classical bass player. Since his arrival in New York 1985 he has become the first call of many of the top US musicians. His mastery of the instrument and unique sound have earned him a reputation as one of the industry’s most sought after players. Throughout his career, Matta has been the “go to” bassist for numerous top musicians from around the globe. At an incredibly young age, Nilson was already recognized as one of Brazil’s most impressive bass players. During his years living in Brazil, he played the bass with luminaries such as João Gilberto, Hermeto Pascoal, Roberto Carlos, Chico Buarque de Holanda, Nana Caymmi, João Bosco, Johnny Alf, Helio Delmiro, Luis Bonfá, and many others. Nilson moved to New York City in 1985. Since that time he has performed and recorded with renowned artists as Joe Henderson, Paquito D’Rivera, Slide Hampton, Herbie Mann, Mark Murphy, Oscar Castro Neves, Don Friedman, Paul Winter, Gato Barbieri, and many others. After moving to New York City, Nilson co-founded the project “The African Brazilian Connection” with legendary pianist Don Pullen. The group released three critically acclaimed albums on Blue Note Records. Nilson then started a project of his own with longtime friends Romero Lubambo and Duduka da Fronseca - “Trio Da Paz”. The trio quickly gained the distinction of one of the foremost Brazilian Jazz groups in the world and after 5 albums, they are more in demand than ever. From 1995 through 1998, Matta worked extensively with four-time Grammy Award winning saxophonist Joe Henderson. Nilson played a vital role in the recording of the album Joe Henderson Big Band, which went on to take home the GRAMMY for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Performance in 1998. When Yo Yo Ma went looking for band members to fill out his new Brazilian project, Nilson was the obvious choice on bass. He recorded Obrigado Brazil and Obrigado Brazil – Live in Carnegie Hall Concert with Yo Yo Ma both of which were GRAMMY winners. These albums prompted a worldwide tour that lasted for 2 years and touched every corner of the globe. Most recently, Nilson recorded with Yo Yo Ma on his album Songs of Joy & Peace in 2008. Since 2006, Nilson has been focused on many of his own projects. That year he released “Walking With My Bass”, which was released to numerous accolades in publications around the world.

Nilson's official site: Jon Hammond, bassist Bob Cranshaw, trumpeter Blake Martin at Local 802 Musicians Union stand at 4th annual JEN Jazz Education Network Conference - Bob Cranshaw's career career spans the heyday of Blue Note Records to his recent involvement with the Musicians Union - known to many as long-time bassist on Sesame Street TV Show - Melbourne R. "Bob" Cranshaw (born December 10, 1932, in Evanston, Illinois) is an American jazz bassist. His career spans the heyday of Blue Note Records to his recent involvement with the Musicians Union. He is perhaps best known for his long association with Sonny Rollins. Cranshaw has been in Rollins's working band on and off for almost five decades, starting with the 1962 album The Bridge. Some of Cranshaw's best-known performances include on Lee Morgan's The Sidewinder and Grant Green's Idle Moments. Cranshaw also served as the sole session bassist to Sesame Street and The Electric Company songwriter and composer Joe Raposo, and played bass guitar on all songs, tracks, buttons and cues recorded by the Children's Television Workshop during Raposo's tenure. Although he lacks the name recognition of other bassists, Cranshaw has performed and recorded with a wide range of leading jazz artists, including Ella Fitzgerald, Dexter Gordon, Grant Green, Coleman Hawkins, Jimmy Heath, Joe Henderson, Johnny Hodges, Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, J. J. Johnson, Jackie McLean, Hank Mobley, Thelonious Monk, James Moody, Lee Morgan, Wes Montgomery, Oscar Peterson, Buddy Rich, George Shearing, Wayne Shorter, Horace Silver, Shirley Scott, Stanley Turrentine, McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, George Benson, and Joe Williams. Along with Wes Montgomery's brother Monk, Cranshaw was among the early jazz bassists to trade his upright bass for an electric bass. He was criticized for this by jazz purists, although he was forced to switch by a back injury incurred in a serious auto accident. Throughout his long and distinguished career he has also performed on hundreds of television shows and film and television scores. He appears on The Blue Note Story, a 90-minute documentary of the famed jazz label. Cranshaw was also a founding member of the short-lived MJT + 3 (Modern Jazz Two) that included Frank Strozier on alto saxophone, Harold Mabern on piano, Willie Thomas on trumpet, and Walter Perkins on drums. The Chicago-based group produced several albums, a number for Vee-Jay Records. Another vintage Cranshaw jam, 1964's Blue Flames, featuring Shirley Scott, Stanley Turrentine and Otis Finch, was recorded for Prestige Records. Cranshaw also played live shows for tap dancer Maurice Hines, along with friend and drummer Paul Goldberg.
