Off the heels of 2018’s Grammy-nominated album, Heart of Brazil: The Music of Egberto Gismonti, comes Jazz Clarinet Icon Eddie Daniels‘ new project paying tribute to the world-renowned Brazilian musician and composer Ivan Lins called Night Kisses from 2xHD and Resonance Records.

Exclusively available in Stereo DSD 512 at NativeDSD thanks to our signature Higher Rates Program.

After Antonio Carlos Jobim, Lins is arguably the most successful Brazilian popular composer outside of Brazil. He was discovered in the 1980s by a host of American pop and jazz luminaries who seized upon the English versions of his songs reinterpreted by Barbra Streisand, Michael Buble, Sting, Sarah Vaughan, Patti Austin and countless others.

Night Kisses brings Daniels together with legendary jazz pianists Dave Grusin and Bob James, plus the top-shelf trio of pianist Josh Nelson, bassist Kevin Axt and drummer Mauricio Zottarelli, and the Grammy Award-winning Harlem Quartet.

With new arrangements by Kuno Schmid and Josh Nelson, Night Kisses collects songs from Ivan Lins classic albums released during the late’70s/early ‘80s period of his career. The album was produced by Resonance Records founder and co-president George Klabin with arrangements by pianists Josh Nelson, Kuno Schmid, Dave Grusin, and Bob James.

Press reviews

Jazz Weekly

Arguably the best living clarinetist, Eddie Daniels displays a new color of his multi-prismed career on this latest album.

This time around, he explores unfamiliar charts in the songbook of famed Brazilian singer/composer Ivan Lins. He’s going into unfamiliar charts with pop star veteran Lins. For this occasion he dug out his old flute, built up his chops and sounds like he was born to play it for a sumptuous amount of songs of this gorgeous album.

He mixes with the Harlem String Quartet for almost all of the pieces, and mixes and matches with some of the best pianists around in Josh Nelson, Dave Grusin, Bob James and Kuno Schmid along with bassist Kevin Axt and drummer Mauricio Zottarelli to create a album that feels like an entire suite of cheerful colors.

The strings are used as a velvety supporting cast, sort of like the best of baseball umpires that are appreciated but not noticed, as Daniels’ rich flute bounces on the upbeat “A Voz Do Povo” and the ELO-ish “DiAquilo Que Eu Sei” and suavely bops on “Dinorah, Dinorah.”

His tenor sax is breathy and sensuous with Schmid on “Cantor Da Noite” and luminous with the strings on “Maos de Afeto”. His molton gold sound on the clarinet is melancholy on “Lembra”, jaunty on “depos dos Temporais” and parlor room perfect on “Pano de Fundo”.

Is it possible to be voted the best instrumentalist in two different categories for one album? Daniels asks that question on this timeless gem, one that is a gleam of happiness during a time of so much anger.
