Celebrating 50 years of the historical album rio65trio with pianist Dom Salvador, bassist Sérgio Barrozo and drummer Duduka Da Fonseca. The original trio, composed of Dom Salvador, Sérgio Barrozo and Édison Machado, who unfortunately passed away in 1990, chose the name Rio 65 Trio to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the city of Rio de Janeiro. In parallel with Bossa Nova, which introduced influences of the West Coast Jazz of Chet Baker, George Shearing, Stan Kenton and others into samba, a new genre was also being developed in Rio de Janeiro: Samba Jazz. In this genre, which draws influences from bebop, hard bop and samba, fits the album rio65trio. The trio also released a second album in 1966 called A Hora e Vez da M.P.M., performed with Marcos Valle and Leny Andrade at Beco Das Garrafas (Rio’s 52nd Street), featured in Elis Regina’s first album Samba – Eu Canto Assim and appeared in Carlos Hugo Christensen’s film Crônica da Cidade Amada.
